“It’s our mission to help creators be discovered, build a business and succeed on our platform. We are excited to bring three new special editions of NextUp, and can’t wait to see the fantastic entries this year,” said Marc Lefkowitz, Head of YouTube creator and artist development, APAC.

While NextUp for Artists will feature music videos by creators, NextUp Women To Watch is a first-ever initiative that aims to empower women content creators and their audiences.

YouTube NextUp for Gamers will support Gaming journeys on YouTube for the very first time in India.
