Common reasons for returned artwork

The acronym “BRIT” must always be in upper case. BRIT stands for The British Record Industry Trust, the UK music charity which receives proceeds of the BRIT events. If shortening the event title to “The BRITs”, BRIT must be spelt in capital letters with a lower case “s”. There must be a capitalised “The” before “The BRIT Awards” or “The BRITs” when referring to the event directly.

The master artwork must not be modified, altered, amended, added to, or subtracted from, in any manner. It should always appear on a plain background that provides a high contrast and no smaller than 25mm wide. Under no circumstances should the MasterCard logo or the text “BRIT Awards 2016 with” be cropped, moved, or removed from the artwork.
