Facts: YouTube is everyone's go-to for pretty much anything you want to know, learn, or watch. The vlogs are endless, and so are the faces of YouTube that keep us glued to our screens. YouTubers have changed how we view online or social media celebrities, and their content on the platform, no matter what your interests are, never disappoints.
So, we want to know not only which YouTuber is your favorite, but how they’ve kept you captivated and why you can’t get enough of their content. How has this YouTuber helped you beyond their YouTube channel? What makes them a stellar creator? Enter the Like, Share, Subscribe Challenge to share why you're this YouTuber's biggest fan and embed a link to their YouTube channel or their video in your story. Then, tell us what about them or their videos makes them your favorite and how they've impacted you beyond the platform.

After my internship ended early from the coronavirus pandemic and freelance film industry jobs were left in shambles, I found myself with an overabundance of time and a lack of money. Fortunately, I remembered a little website called Vocal where I won a writing Challenge the year before.
Today we’re excited to introduce Challenges, a new way for creators to get inspired and join the rest of the Vocal community in some friendly competition. Starting this week, creators will be able to participate in various Challenges across a range of topics and interests for the chance to win cash prizes, experiences, and much more.
There’s no one right way to tell a story. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and we want to see what yours looks like. Challenges are meant to inspire this creativity, and we want to see you tell a story that’s unique and authentic to you—but there are just a few things we look for across the board to be sure we’re judging every entry consistently and fairly.
