I was watching a video from Bubzbeauty, a beauty guru on YouTube, where she mentioned how she received a package from YouTube. She received a giant plaque that had a gold play button on it. After I watched her video I decided to research the “Golden Play”. The Golden Play is awarded to the channels that have more than 1 million subscribers on YouTube. It is presented quarterly and not only do they receive this pretty golden play button, the channels also receive a gift card for camera equipment.
For the channels that receive over 100,000 subscribers they also get rewarded but not with a golden play button.
Here is more information about the awards as well as a video.
