Inspiration Video Contest Winners!

This past Sunday saw the conclusion of my second Video Challenge where I asked the question, “What inspires you?” I received 26 amazing entries from all kinds of YouTubers. Thank you to everyone who entered.

From those 26 entries both my guest judges (nerimon and achampag) both agreed that two vloggers deserved a tie for first place, so I will be sending copies of my new book, YouTube: An Insider’s Guide to Climbing the Charts to both winners when it is published next month.

First, BrineeJeanne gave us “The one with Inspiration“. Brinee is so full of life and did a wonderful job explaining her reasons for picking the source of inspiration that she did.

Second, tying with Brinee is recipesfromahat with her video “Inspiration“.

Please go watch their great entries, and others if you wish.

This Video Challenge was inspired by an interview nerimon posted on his blog, you can find that Q&A here.

Thanks again to everyone who entered. This was fun, we’ll have to do it again soon! If you have any ideas about future Video Challenges, feel free to leave them in the comments section.

PS. Lea posted a playlist with some of her favorite entries here.
