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.
