There are already over 15,000 YouTube partners, raking in views and collecting fans across the Web. However, the United States is currently dominating in the Partner department. That’s why YouTube is now reaching out to online video creators across Europe, hosting events dedicated to the European YouTube stars of the future. If you’re an online video creator in Madrid, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Rome or London get ready – you just may be the next big YouTube star in Europe.
That’s right – today Sara Mormino, Online Sales and Operations Manager at YouTube, announced on the YouTube blog that YouTube is looking for more people from across Europe to join in the YouTube Partner Program. She writes, “That’s why we’re hosting the first ever European YouTube Partner events dedicated to the producers, directors, writers, artists, video and media professionals of the future. The events will take place in six cities across Europe between March 31 and April.”
Events are scheduled for the following cities. Find out about the event location, as well as how to RSVP, by clicking here.
- Madrid – March 31, 2011
- Paris – April 4, 2011
- Berlin – April 6, 2011
- Amsterdam – April 8, 2011
- Rome – April 11, 2011
- London – April 14, 2011
The events, which are dubbed ‘Becoming YouTube Stars’, attendees will learn a variety of things from how to create and promote YouTube content to how to become a YouTube Partner. Attendees will also hear from a panel of already successful YouTube Partners, as well as get a sneak peek at some of YouTube’s upcoming product releases and partner features.
YouTube is constantly striving to ramp up its partner program, offering great incentives for partners to forge ahead with grants, gift certificates for equipment, and more. The announcement of these events in Europe only confirm the fact that the YouTube Partner Program has become a massive driving force in the increase of revenue on the site and that YouTube is looking to spread the wealth with even more partners around the globe (in order to increase their own wealth, of course, in terms of revenue and content).
If you are in one of the cities on the ‘Becoming YouTube Stars’ European schedule, will you be attending? What do you hope to take from the experience?
