To showcase and celebrate the diversity in Asia-Pacific, there will be dedicated country spotlight segments featuring homegrown creators and hosted in local languages. More creators will be announced in the upcoming days on YouTube FanFest’s Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts.
Another integral part of the YouTube FanFest experience is the annual Creator Camp. This year, YouTube is also hosting a series of virtual Creator Camps for rising creators to inspire, educate, and empower the next generation of YouTube stars by sharing ways to elevate the quality of video and strengthen content strategy. In India, Creator Camp will take place on October 1, 2020.
Gautam Anand, managing director, YouTube APAC, said, “YouTube FanFest has become an annual celebration of our YouTube communities across APAC. While we couldn’t host physical shows this year, we hope this special edition YouTube FanFest will create moments of joy, spread positivity and bring about a sense of unity that we all need during this time. We’re excited to see international creators and homegrown talent from across APAC shine on this virtual stage.”
