5-day creator camp

The Creator Camp is a 5-day crash course where you'll learn about video production with creators. You'll get to know the ins-and-outs of building a rockstar channel with fun video assignments, learn how to use high-quality equipment, and more. Plus you can network with other creators the whole time.

Equipment voucher

Once you've finished learning, it's time to start creating! Graduates of Creator Camp leave with a voucher for new production equipment worth $2,000 (or local equivalent) at a YouTube selected retailer.

1:1 channel advice

YouTube NextUp winners also get access to benefits normally available only to Silver & Up creators! That includes one-on one-advice from a dedicated channel coach, invites to exclusive events and parties, and the chance to work with YouTube Partners and NextUp grads.

How to enter

Entering is super easy. If you think you're eligible, all you need to do is answer a few short questions to let us know what your channel's all about. That's it! Not sure if you qualify? Our checklist will let you know if you do.
