Apple announced its first Apple Music Awards in December 2019, with Billie Eilish taking home the highest honor as Global Artist of the Year. Each award features a custom silicon wafer from Apple suspended between a polished sheet of glass and a machined, anodized aluminum body. Today, the United States Patent and Trademark Office released Apple’s design trademark filing for the Apple Music Awards graphic logo.
