YouTube Creators Festival Ghana will be experiencing a significant uptrend for its second edition this year, following an official endorsement by Beyond the Return, a Ghanaian government diaspora programme.
The YouTube Creators Festival is the first ever three-day long independent convention in Ghana that brings all content creators across the region to inspire, educate and engage in the global YouTube community.
The endorsement according to the official statement is a “mutually beneficial agreement” for both parties.
The deed will give them the opportunity to share ideas on promoting the satisfaction of the festival’s stakeholders and provide unique experiences for attendees.
The YouTube Creator Festival Ghana since its debut has established itself as a major player in the creative sector by honouring Ghanaian content creators and promoting local tourism.
The festival has also attracted many sponsors and partners locally and internationally, including TheAfricanDream.net that is associating with the annual event as a media partner.
For this year’s edition, a free Masterclass for female content creators will be added, serving as an upgrade of the first.
According to the organizers, young women will be trained in practical aspects of YouTube monetization, content production, copyright, etc., in order to promote further inclusion of women in the content industry.
