Apple officially announced the third, annual Apple Music Awards, honoring the best artists of the year. The awards recognized artists’ achievements in music across five categories and specifically highlighted regional artists. In the Apple announcement, the artists are pictured with incredibly well designed physical plaques. These Apple Music Awards wallpapers are inspired by the award designs and make incredible backgrounds.

Our friend, @BasicAppleGuy took to replicating the design in a digital form. According to BasicAppleGuy, the research on replicating the awards for a wallpaper began with an intensive study of the Apple Music Awards announcement video, seen below.
From the video, he created a smaller 420 x 420 pixel microchip made from basic shapes that, at scale, look like a very close match to the awards themselves. Combining the chips with some gradients, colors, proper shading, the Apple Music Awards wallpapers are a fun way of having a slice of that great design on your own devices.
The included images for download in this post are just a sampling of the full set on the BasicAppleGuy blog, where he includes dark modes for all devices and variants. If you are a fan of this set, check out our iDB curated gallery for additional downloads of his creativity.
This marks the first of many future posts that utilize a brand new wallpaper gallery style format. If you’ve followed our wallpapers for the last eight years, you should note the page is a little cleaner! With small frames around each image and a clearly designated download button. Personally, I think its a minor change that improves the overall experience on the wallpaper posts in a large way. My thanks to our editor in chief @SébastienPage for dialing in the new design! Let me know what you think on Twitter!
