This April, we announced that YouTube NextUp was back in action in India. The sheer quantity and quality of entries we received in the last couple of weeks were a true testimony to the breadth of creative talent in the country.
We received entries from multiple cities and in numerous languages. The array of content genres was just as diverse, including regional comedy, tech, food, DIY, vlogs, fashion and beauty, gaming and music. We can’t wait to see what else our creators will come out with next.
The winners (in no particular order) of the YouTube NextUp Mumbai Class of 2017 for YouTube NextUp Mumbai are:
NextUp winners will get to be a part of a weeklong Creator Camp at YouTube Space Mumbai from July 10 to July 14, 2017 where they will team up with production experts to learn about and perfect their camera work, lighting, sound, and writing skills. They’ll also get to hear from some of the NextUp alumni about their journeys on YouTube and explore possibilities of collaborating with other fast-rising creators in the program.
Winners will also receive some cool prizes such as a voucher worth INR 130,000 for production gear, channel strategy consultations, and invites to exclusive events. And as an exciting new perk for this year’s NextUp class, one channel from each NextUp camp in 2016-17 will be invited to attend a global creator camp at YouTube Space Los Angeles at the end of 2017.
Kudos folks! We can’t wait to see you at YouTube Space Mumbai.
