The Ultimate Guide to YouTube Creator Awards: Eligibility, Redemption, and FAQs

Published: November 11, 2022

Recognizing the unwavering commitment of content creators, YouTube Creator Awards are symbols of distinction. These accolades mark your channel’s growth milestones and the profound effect you’ve left on viewers. Our extensive guide details the eligibility requirements, redemption process, shipping info, and answers some common queries.

Understanding Eligibility Criteria

Achieving a YouTube Creator Award requires hitting subscriber milestones at various levels: Silver (100K subscribers), Gold (1 million), Diamond (10 million), or Red Diamond (100 million). Upon reaching a milestone, your channel is reviewed by YouTube to ensure you meet all necessary criteria before any award is granted.
Your channel must remain active, with uploads in the last six months; have a clean record with no Community Guidelines violations in the past year; adhere to YouTube’s Terms of Service; maintain good standing in the YouTube Partner Program; avoid deceptive or spammy content; and feature primarily original content creation, among other stipulations.
Channels that primarily feature compilations or extensively use copyrighted content may be ineligible for a Creator Award.

Redeeming Your Creator Award

Eligible creators who achieve a milestone—Silver, Gold, Diamond, or Red Diamond—will receive redemption codes from YouTube Studio via email or notification banners. Redeem your award by visiting societyawards.com/youtubeawards, input your code, personalize your award with your channel name, and enter your delivery details to place your order.
Creators in Brazil or India might need to provide a tax ID as part of the redemption process due to local customs regulations.
Post-redemption, you will receive a confirmation email promptly, followed by order delivery within an estimated 2–3 weeks. Shipping confirmation emails will keep you informed with tracking numbers, ensuring transparency throughout the delivery process.
Creators are responsible for any applicable customs duties or taxes and should respond quickly to any additional documentation requests from delivery companies for a smooth customs experience. This proactive communication helps avoid returns or losses that may require purchasing replacement awards later.
For concerns about misplaced redemption codes or eligibility inquiries, refer to the ‘Get A YouTube Creator Award’ self-service support page within YouTube’s Help Center.
You may purchase additional awards for a single milestone, but further reviews are needed. Contact youtubecreator@societyawards.com with your YouTube account’s email for additional purchases beyond the initial award.
Handmade awards may have minor variations, which are a part of their unique charm. However, contact Society Awards for resolutions if significant damage occurs.
If your award has not arrived within the standard delivery time of two to three weeks, track the shipping status with the provided number and complete any necessary documentation. If delivery issues arise due to fulfillment delays, higher demand, weather conditions, holidays, or if incorrect information was provided, notifications will be sent to rectify the issue. The support team is always at hand to assist if needed.
