In our monthly On The Rise program, we identify four partners whose channels drive significant YouTube watch time but haven’t yet reached the 100,000 subscriber mark. This month, with your help, we’re introducing four partners on their way to surpassing that milestone. Our July nominees create content that runs the gamut. If you’re interested in seeing new places, learning new math skills, seeing two dogs enjoy life, or starting a home improvement project, you might want to watch some of the videos below.

What’s in it for you? Aside from learning more about some of our talented partners, you can help jump-start their audience development and channel growth. Review their videos below, vote for your favorite here, and one of these candidates will have the opportunity to be featured across YouTube later this month. In addition to your votes, each channel will be evaluated on criteria such as viewer engagement and channel optimization techniques to decide which partner we’ll feature.

Past On The Rise featured partners--such as starofmay and hauntedsunshinegirl--have seen increases in subscribers and watch time thanks to your support. Get to the poll before July 14, 5 p.m. PT when voting closes, and don’t forget to come back to see which channel will be featured on July 28.

If you’re interested in participating or have suggestions for partners you think should be featured, we encourage you to visit our On The Rise homepage. You can check out all of our past featured partners on the Featured Partners tab, or nominate a YouTube partner to be considered for the program on the Nominate tab. 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. We’ll continue to feature promising partners who drive YouTube watch time, have fewer than 100,000 subscribers, and produce engaging content on a regular basis.
