Feel free to submit nominations for your own channel, or for channels you follow that you think deserve more attention or could be the next YouTube sensation.

About the On The Rise program

On The Rise is a monthly promotional program for up-and-coming YouTube partners. Featured partners are determined based on their demonstration of strong original content, optimization strategies, and community support.

Each month, with the help of your nominations, we identify four popular and promising partners whose channels drive significant YouTube watch time but haven’t yet reached the 100,000 subscriber mark. Fans and viewers from the YouTube community then have the opportunity to vote for the channel they’d most like to see featured. In addition to community votes, an internal YouTube team reviews each channel on criteria such as viewer engagement and channel optimization techniques.

Since November 2010, featured On The Rise partners have gained many subscribers and seen their careers take off, in large part due to your support.

Check out our most recent featured partner, as well as past months' featured partners, on the "Featured Partners" tab. You can contribute to On The Rise by nominating a channel on the "Nominate" tab.

Please note: this program is currently available to English-speaking partners only.
