VidCon Creates Grant For Up-And-Coming YouTubers

YouTube conference VidCon has announced that they will be issuing a weekly grant to qualified emerging YouTuber’s for the next year. The grant will be $2,000 and the money can be spent however the participant chooses. The grant amounts to $104,000 for up-and-coming creators.

VidCon founder Hank Green issued the following statement:

“We think we’re in trouble if the creativity and passion of the last ten years starts to be beaten down by the new established powers, whether that’s agencies or networks, or even VidCon, with its [sic] necessarily finite invites. We just want to make things a little easier because we know this is hard.”

VidCon staff members will be will be “doing [their] best to pick out different kinds of creators who are pushing boundaries, creating for underserved audiences, and/or making the world a better place with their content.”

The grant requirements include: The content must be on YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, Twitch, Musical.ly, Tumblr, Facebook, Pinterest, or a personal blog; you have been uploading at least two videos per month for a minimum of six months; you must earn less than 150,000 views per video; and you must live in the United States.

There is a demonetization debate going on within the YouTube community and VidCon believes that this grant will provide more opportunity for beginning YouTubers. YouTube upped the ante on the number of views and subscribers that are required to receive money for advertisements and people are fired up. YouTube power channels have been controlling the video space and the VidCon grant aims to counteract the new standard. Popular YouTubers like Casey Neistat, Justin Ezarik, and Tyler Oakley have publically expressed their frustrations with the sites corporate moves.

The website dedicated to the VidCon grant stated:

“Some months are great, others are terrible. More people have more resources, and breaking out is harder than ever. But we think we’re in trouble if the creativity and passion of the last ten years starts to be beaten down by the new established powers, whether that’s agencies or networks, or even VidCon, with it’s necessarily finite invites.”
