Meet the creators heading to three special editions of NextUp: #YouTubeLatino, #YouTubeBlack and #WomentoWatch

This summer, we opened applications to three special editions of our NextUp camps designed to support up-and-coming Black, Latino and women creators on the platform: NextUp #YouTubeLatino, NextUp #YouTubeBlack, and NextUp #WomentoWatch.

After reviewing thousands of applications, we’re excited to introduce the winners who will be attending these NextUp camps in Los Angeles, New York and London this fall:

NextUp #YouTubeLatino (Los Angeles)

NextUp #YouTubeBlack (New York)

NextUp #WomenToWatch (London)

These creators will join us for week-long creator camps at our YouTube Spaces in Los Angeles, New York and London this fall. As part of the camps, creators will attend production workshops that provide a crash course on how to up-level their YouTube content through classes on advanced camera, lighting, and sound techniques. In addition to learning about video production, creators will receive one-on one-advice about their YouTube channel strategy from the YouTube Partnerships team, and they’ll have the chance to network with each other as well as NextUp grads. At the end of the week, creators will leave with a voucher for new production equipment that can help them put their new skills into practice.

We can’t wait to welcome these creators to our YouTube Spaces in Los Angeles, New York and London in the coming weeks! For more information, visit and follow the action on Twitter with #YTNextUp.
