Smart teams up with YouTube to empower the next big Filipino content creators

 

Do you think you have what it takes to be the next big online content creator from the Philippines? It’s time to show everything you've got as leading mobile services provider Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) has teamed up with YouTube for NextUp, a search and training program for the next generation of Filipino content creators!

 

Be among the 12 Filipino content creators who will be given a chance to participate in an online creator camp that brings together NextUp alumni, production mentors, and current YouTube content creators to impart valuable tips, the latest techniques, and strategies to elevate your channel to the next level and go beyond your limits by growing your content creation skills.

 

As part of the NextUp program, each of the 12 finalists will also take-home equipment vouchers worth PHP100,000 and data offers, among others. From the 12 winners, at least three creators will bag a 12-month endorsement contract with Smart to work on the brand’s exciting productions and campaigns.

 

Supporting the community of Filipino creators

 

NextUp is a demonstration of Smart and YouTube’s collective goal of supporting the Filipino creator community by providing the tools and opportunities that can help them discover and cultivate their passions through unlimited opportunities.

 

“We believe that we have a wealth of passionate and creative young Filipinos who are just waiting to be discovered and given the opportunity to hone their craft. With NextUp, we are giving them a platform to let their creativity shine and learn from today's top creators so they can take their passion to a whole new level,” said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.

 

“YouTube is all about the content creators and we’re committed to supporting their discovery and growth. We hope to enable not just the finalists but all the NextUp participants, so more creators can benefit from this amazing initiative. Together with Smart, we will hone their skills and help them seize the economic opportunities that come with having a growing YouTube channel,” said Marc Lefkowitz, Director of YouTube Partner Development and Management, APAC.

 

To join NextUp, go to goo.gle/nextup-ph for more details on the submission process and eligibility requirements.

 

The applicants who won’t be part of the 12 finalists can still elevate their YouTube skills through NextUp’s series of online workshops that will cover a wide array of topics such as video production and audience development, among others.

 

Philippines' fastest 5G network

 

Filipino content creators who want to take their passion to the next level can rely on Smart Prepaid's Unli GIGA Video, which offers unlimited access to YouTube and other streaming apps, as well as 2 GB open-access data for seven days for only P149.

 

Unli GIGA Video is powered by Smart, the fastest 5G network in the Philippines as reported by Ookla®, the global leader in internet testing and analysis.  Smart also recently reaffirmed its dominance as the country’s fastest mobile network for the fourth year in a row, based on analysis by Ookla of tests taken with Speedtest® covering the first half of Q1-Q2 2021.            

 

On the other hand, Smart scored a rare sweep in the April 2021 Philippines Mobile Network Experience Awards by independent analytics firm Opensignal, beating the competition across all metrics in three essential aspects of service, including Coverage (4G Coverage Experience, 4G Availability), Speed (Download and Upload Speed) and Experience (Games, Video and Voice App).
