The YouTube Creator Awards program is our way of recognizing the extraordinary effort creators put into their channels. In order to be eligible for a Creator Award you need to meet the eligibility criteria and provide the required information.
- Silver - when you reach 100,000 subscribers
- Gold - when you reach 1,000,000 subscribers
- Diamond - when you reach 10,000,000 subscribers
In addition to the above subscriber threshold requirements, Creator Awards are given at YouTube's discretion. We only recognize creators who follow our guidelines, and each channel is reviewed before an award can be issued. That means we reward creators who keep their accounts in good standing without copyright strikes or violations of YouTube’s Community Guidelines or Terms of Services. You’ll need to resolve any such issues to be considered for a Creator Award.
