Creators from food to beauty to science and beyond are represented in the new class.

YouTube has selected 51 channels to represent the next class of creators for the U.K and the U.S. as part of its NextUp initiative.

YouTube launched applications for NextUp in February to support up-and-coming creators. Winners get access to an exclusive “creators camp” as well as a $2,500 voucher toward equipment. Tapped creators for this year’s class include Jackson Bird, Sarah Snitch, and Cheap Lazy Vegan.

A forthcoming NextUp class is being offered to Japanese creators and applications are currently being accepted. Upcoming classes include NextUp camps in Berlin, Paris, Sao Paulo, Toronto, and Mumbai.
