The Ace Up Our Sleeve May 03, 2018 17:16

Welcome back to the Creative Awards blog where we bring you the very best in bespoke awards and trophies as well as our cutting edge crystal glass awards. In today's blog we shine the Creative Awards spotlight on one of our latest projects, the Video Aces award.

Now, what is the biggest search engine in the world? Google you may shout, impatiently, at your screen. And the second? Bing? Yahoo? No, not quite. Youtube is the second biggest search engine in the world. From humble beginnings (the first video uploaded was an elephant in a zoo) Youtube now dominates the video hosting market. The stats around Youtube are simply mind boggling:

  • It is estimated that on avery 1,300,000 people use Youtube every day
  • 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute!
  • Almost 5 billion videos are watched on Youtube every single day.
  • The total number of hours of video watched on YouTube each month – 3.25 billion
  • In an average month, 8 out of 10 18-49 year-olds watch YouTube

This media juggernaut shows no sign of slowing down and has resulted in a cultural shift in how video is consumed across the planet. The big players in Youtube, those who create the content and attract the viewers, can earn up to $17 million dollars a year and certainly are on their way to cementing their way to stardom. 

However, coming in as a huge competitor to Youtube is the mighty Facebook who also have video sharing capabilities. In fact, we think that you would be hard press to find someone who hasn't watched a video on Facebok. We all know what it's like memes, food pictures, updates from people you don't really know and videos. so big is Facebook's impact on video streaming that it is potentially poised to overtake Youtube. Indeed, Facebook's daily video views are over 8 billion and rising steadily.

Acrylic Aluminium AwardHow does this link to our Video Aces awards? Well, these special bespoke trophies were commissioned to reward and celebrate the achievements of companies and their view count across the various video platforms.

Creative Awards were tasked with designing and manufacturing the custom award that would be sent out to the biggest video content producers across the world. The team opted for a classic design, the name of the award at the centre. Custom cut pink cast acrylic was used to create an eye catching body.

Video Aces Side ShotResting on a brushed, gold aluminium base that was engraved with the recipient's details the award is certainly something special. The sleek, slender and sexy design captures the playfulness and creativity of those responsible for the videos that excite, inspire and capture the imagination of people across the globe.
