Vote for your favorite January “On The Rise” nominee

By Devon Storbeck and Christine Wang

YouTube Partner Support

In our monthly On The Rise program, we identify four partners whose channels are seeing significant growth but haven’t yet reached the 100,000 subscriber mark. This month, with your help, we’re excited to introduce you to four popular and promising partners so you can help them grow their audience and channels.

Our January nominees include a filmmaker, a cupcake artist, a vlogger, and a singer-songwriter, and you can help jumpstart their YouTube careers. Review their videos below, vote for your favorite here, and one of these candidates will have the opportunity to be featured across YouTube later this month. In addition to your votes, each channel will be evaluated on criteria such as viewer engagement and channel optimization techniques to decide which partner we’ll feature.

In past months, featured On The Rise partners like RichardGaleFilms and polcan99 have gained many subscribers and seen their careers take off, in large part due to your support. This month’s poll will be open until January 18, 5pm PT, so don’t forget to vote for your favorite channel. Check back to see which channel will be featured on January 30.


Scott believes anyone can be a filmmaker if they have the ambition, and he’s spent several years demonstrating tips and tricks for how to make films on a strict budget and without top-of-the-line equipment. Check out his videos for low-cost DIY equipment ideas, Q&As and behind-the-scenes tutorials that support his philosophy, “it’s about technique, not the gear.”


You don’t have to have spent years in the kitchen in order to create professional-looking cupcakes or cake pops - and you don’t even have to travel to the Gold Coast to try them! Australian baker extraordinaire Elise will teach you how to make your own sweet treats with her step-by-step instructional videos.


Tris of TristopiaTV is a British vlogger who shares his thoughts and comments on a wide range of topics on his weekly vlog show, T-Time. Check out his channel to listen to his views from everything from the nationwide fascination with tea to the world ending.


A self-described “musician and hopeless romantic,” Tom hails from London and shares original music and covers of some popular songs with his audience via his channel. He writes and composes his own music for songs like “Pavement Sleeper” and puts his own spin on works from Bob Marley and Lana Del Ray to name a few.
