Meet October’s Featured Creators on the Rise
From mountain biking how-tos to anime insights, these up-and-coming creators are sharing their personal passions with audiences around the world.

Creator on the Rise is a program that identifies and celebrates up-and-coming YouTube channels. Over the years, we’ve featured more than 5,000 Creators on the Rise and expanded from the United States to over 20 countries and regions around the world, including North Africa, India, and South Korea.

Every month, we’re highlighting a selection of these emerging creators to help you discover new creator communities and subcultures on YouTube — and maybe learn a thing or two about Dua Lipa’s vocals or barbershop trims in the process.
