Charlie McDonnell, LDShadowLady and more will be volunteering as YouTube Mentors at VidCon 2016.
The VidCon creator mentorship programme gives attendees the chance to receive feedback and advice on their ideas from an established YouTube creator. The opportunity is available to those with Creator Track Passes for VidCon 2016, with those applying needing to submit a 500-word essay that outlines their goals for the project, what they have accomplished thus far, and how the mentoring would help take it further.

The form also asks applicants to name five creators from the list who they feel would be best-placed to advise them. UK creators Charlie McDonnell, Lizzie “LDShadowLady”, Emily Diana Ruth, and Louis Cole are among those volunteering to be mentors, along with VidCon founders John and Hank Green. The full list of mentors includes a wide range of content creators, including those with experience in animation, short films, comedy, and gaming.
Creators selected through this process will have 15-to-20 minutes of one-on-one time with their chosen mentor to discuss their creative idea and receive feedback.
Applications close on 15 April and successful applicants will be notified on 1 May. Those wishing to apply can do so by visiting VidCon’s website.
