Collab Challenge Winner!

Two weeks ago I wrapped up my first challenge in which I asked readers to make a collaboration video on YouTube with someone who they had never collaborated with before. The challenge was mostly to help foster the YouTube community, while also providing some promotion to the winner.

Michael Buckley (WhatTheBuckShow) and Kevin Nalty (nalts) were judges, along with myself. And we choose lovethekellster’s I Love Lucy Parody video as the winner (watch it below). Lovethekellster collaborated with Chemicalhippos and they will both receive a free copy of my book upon publication.

Throughout the week the contest ran, I posted numerous articles aimed at collab video makers, everything from finding collab partners, to the secrets of making a great collab video, to promoting collaboration videos. I also talk at length in the book I wrote about YouTube for O’Reilly Media about collaboration videos and how appearing on others’ channels is vital to building your own audience… and a lot of fun!

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest, there were a lot of great videos made. And thank you to Buck and Nalts for their time and expertise.

Look forward to a new challenge very soon.
