YouTube NextUp has finally selected the 12 winners in this year’s nationwide search, choosing some of the most passionate content creators who will be given the chance to take the next big step for their YouTube careers.
NextUp Manila Class of 2019 brings together a diverse pool of talents from all over the Philippines. The new roster of creators includes fast-rising stars such as two singer-songwriters who are making their mark in the local music scene; an entertainer who is sharing her love for music and beauty online; as well as a celebrity who is taking the spotlight as a chef content creator.
Also making it to the lineup are those who use their platform to share knowledge online: a professional lawyer who guides those who want to pursue a career in law; a Bicolano who is sharing his knowledge on poultry farming; and an inspiring Cebuana who shares advice on corporate life.
Completing the magic 12 are creators who share their passions and interests with their community: an avid cyclist taking audiences on a new adventure in each video; a free-spirited creative sharing beauty and grooming tips for men; a young charismatic college student-vlogger; an enthusiastic creator who is sharing fitspiration; and a maritime chief engineer sharing his life on the seas.
All winners of YouTube NextUp Manila are set to receive training from NextUp mentors and alumni, a P105,000 voucher for new production equipment, and hands-on guidance and strategic account management from the YouTube Creator and Artist Development team. They will also participate in a 5-day creator camp where they will know the ins-and-outs of creating content and building their channels, as well as get the chance to produce their dream video projects.
