Hitting the coveted Number 1 spot on the Official Chart is seen as the pinnacle for any artist.
For more than 65 years, being top of the pops has been the ultimate accolade, so in 2011 the Official Charts Company launched the Official Number 1 Award to mark this special moment in an artist’s career.
BBC Radio 1 and OfficialCharts.com are involved with the award, and since its launch has been presented to a host of chart-topping acts. Ed Sheeran, Take That, Kylie Minogue, George Ezra, Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa, Daft Punk, Sam Smith and Liam and Noel Gallagher are just some of the stars we've worked with. Check out all our Number 1 Award coverage here.
The Number 1 Award is also available to anyone who has been involved in a chart-topping single or album - from the artist themselves through to the record label, songwriters, producers, management company or publisher.
The award itself is a heavy duty, brushed aluminium trophy - silver for singles and gold for albums - and personalised for the recipient. The first award for every new Number 1 Single is supplied free of charge for the chart-topping artist if they work with us on promotional activity, and discounts can be offered on bulk orders of 10 or more.
