Earlier this year, YouTube announced the Next Vlogger 2013 competition, which asked vloggers with “personal stories of triumph” to submit videos for a chance to win $4,000 in video equipment and exclusive training from industry experts.
Submissions ended back in April, and YouTube officially announced the winners today. Because they shared their stories of triumph over adversity, these vloggers will receive exclusive Google+ Hangout training courses as well as the chance to collaborate with like-minded vloggers.
Expect big things from these vloggers in the future, just as YouTube’s previous NextUp contest introduced the world to a new breed of passionate, talented vloggers. You can check out the winners’ channels below.
