YouTube Creators on the Rise August 2021

Meet August’s featured Creators on the Rise

From fingerboarding to 3D printing, these emerging creators share their areas of expertise with audiences around the world.

In January 2017, we announced the launch of Creator on the Rise, a program that identifies and celebrates up-and-coming YouTube channels. Since then, we’ve featured more than 5,000 Creators on the Rise and expanded from the US to over 20 countries and regions around the world, including North Africa, India, and South Korea. 

Starting this month, we’re excited to highlight a select group of featured Creators on the Rise in this playlist. You’ll find a cross-section of channels that span genres and areas of expertise, letting you discover new channels to add to your subscriptions and perhaps even a newfound interest in architecture or an aptitude for magic tricks
