If your idea of fame is being recognized by thousands of subscribers for your videos on YouTube – you might want to give Vlogging (video blogging) a shot. Tons of people have done it before, and there’s still a lot of room out there for more. However, if you’re serious about wanting to take Vlogging to the next level, Google will help to make some of your dreams come true – at least sixteen of you. Google announced today the start of its hunt to find the YouTube Next Vlogger.
Starting today, applications will be open for 16 promising vloggers to take part in 3 months of intimate educational workshops held on Google+ Hangouts. Each selected vlogger will receive $5,000 worth of video equipment and over $10,000 worth of promotion on and off YouTube. Participants also receive mentoring from big names such as iJustine – one of YouTube’s most popular vloggers.
To participate, you’ll need to be from either Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK or the US. We’re pretty sure there are going to be tons of entries in this competition, so you better get cracking if you think you have what it takes. It’ll be interesting to see how many successful vloggers will be spawned from this event. Register here (applications close on April 18th).
