The BRIT Awards NFT Collection

NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token. It’s proof that a digital item is authentic and unique. Like owning a rare vinyl record or a piece of art in a digital world. If you buy an NFT you will be its only owner until you want to sell it or trade it or keep it and collect some more.

Available at, and created by the digital artist MRE, these NFTs are based around the iconic BRITs statue. There will be 13 editions at £10 each in the collection, representing 13 award categories in the 2022 awards. Fans who buy all 13 NFTS will go in the draw to win 2 x tickets to the 2023 BRIT Awards ceremony.

Purchasing is as simple as any other form of online shopping; you can just use your debit or credit card. There’s no need to open a crypto wallet or have any prior understanding of cryptocurrency or the blockchain. The BRITs partner Serenade will handle the blockchain operations behind the scenes so you don’t have to worry about the technicalities.

Your BRIT Awards NFT will then be delivered to your NFT wallet and presented in your Serenade Gallery, So, as long as you have an internet connection, you can access your NFT whenever you want.

Serenade’s NFTs use 1/10th of the energy required to post a tweet, and 1/44,000th of a normal NFT, meaning they have minimal environmental impact. This is because they use the authentication method called ‘Proof of Stake’, rather than the standard Ethereum ‘Proof of Work’ method.



West Midlands-born digital artist MRE, who designed the NFT and has worked with previous BRIT winners Dave and J Hus, says of the release:

Working with The BRIT Awards to create something special to celebrate this year’s BRITs winners is a great opportunity to bring digital art and NFTs to a wider audience. This collaboration is helping develop new creative possibilities and to push the boundaries of what can be done to make music fans part of a wider experience.”
