A new service will support creators and brands when working together, and help to increase transparency.
Hank Green is launching the Internet Creators Guild, a resource and support system for creators. This not-for-profit organisation will be funded by a $50,000 grant from VidCon combined with a $60 annual membership fee for all creators.
The aim of the Internet Creators Guild (ICG) is to create a bridge between creators and the wider world, helping to increase transparency and grow understanding. The ICG will offer advice on topics such as how to deal with copyright strikes, the right time to ban commenters, and the best way to collaborate with brands and multi-channel networks.
The ICG’s board of directors is comprised of YouTubers from four of the main genres of YouTube content: gaming, beauty, vlogging, and filmmaking. This board will include US YouTubers such as Ashley Mardell, known for her series The ABCs of LGBT, and filmmaker Anna Akana.
I’m revved to see where the Internet Creators Guild goes, and revved to sign up!
And revved that I foresaw it!
