The Brit Award for International Group is an award given by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), an organisation which represents record companies and artists in the United Kingdom. The accolade is presented at the Brit Awards, an annual celebration of British and international music. 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.
Although the award was first presented in 1986 as International Group, a Best International Artist award (featuring groups and solo artists as nominees) was presented in 1983 and won by American group Kid Creole and the Coconuts. The award was not handed out in 2010 but was reinstated in 2011. International Group has been won by U2 the most times, with five wins. Overall, artists from United States have received the most awards, with 20 wins.
