From Paul McCartney to Madonna, the BPI’s iconic Platinum, Gold and Silver Certified Awards have long been presented to music artists to celebrate major record sales milestones. Originally introduced in 1973, more than 9,000 awards have been issued to date during their illustrious 40 year history.Kasabian receiving certification for the album 'Empire'.
From 2010, every BPI Certified Award disc boasts an individually-numbered and unique BPI hologram to authenticate each Certified Award and enhance the look of the framed presentation disc itself. The highly coveted Awards are THE way of commemorating UK sales success for the artists and the teams that support them.
Platinum, Gold and Silver awards adorn the homes of some of the biggest names in recorded music. Madonna remains the most certified artist of all time, notching up 45 awards, whilst Queen, with 42 Awards, currently stands as the greatest British recipient. The growth of digital formats saw a la carte singles and album downloads become eligible from 2004 onwards, while the first Music DVD certification was awarded in 2005.
