The Brit Award for British Video of the Year is an award given by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), an organisation which represents record companies and artists in the United Kingdom.[1] The accolade is presented at the Brit Awards, an annual celebration of British and international music.[2] The winners and nominees are determined by the Brit Awards voting academy with over one-thousand members, which comprise record labels, publishers, managers, agents, media, and previous winners and nominees.[3] The award was first presented in 1985 as British Video of the Year.

From 2003 to 2013, the award was not given out. It was then revived in 2014, becoming a fan-voted award which allows users of Twitter to vote for nominees through personalised hashtags. The vote involves weekly fan votes through Twitter, including the final vote which takes place on the night of the ceremony.[4]
