May 12, Washington: Since Shorts is a new way to watch and create on YouTube, they have been taking a fresh look at what it means to monetize and reward creators for their content. Today, shared the latest updates here as they continue to build Shorts alongside the community of creators and artists.



Introducing the YouTube Shorts Fund

They’re introducing the YouTube Shorts Fund, a $100M fund distributed over the course of 2021-2022. Anyone is eligible to participate in the fund simply by creating unique Shorts that delight the YouTube community.


Each month, they’ll reach out to thousands of creators whose Shorts received the most engagement and views to reward them for their contributions. They’ll also ask these creators to share their feedback with us so they can continue to improve the product experience.


The Shorts Fund is not limited to just creators in the YouTube Partner Program. Creators will be eligible to participate if they create original content for Shorts and adhere to the Community Guidelines.


They’ll share additional details as they get closer to launching the fund in the coming months.



The future of monetization on Shorts

The Shorts Fund is the first step in the journey to build a monetization model for Shorts on YouTube. This is a top priority for us and will take us some time to get it right. They are actively working on this and will take the feedback gathered from the community to help develop a long-term program specifically designed for YouTube Shorts.


They’re excited to start rewarding creators for their contributions through the Shorts Fund. At the same time, they’ll expand the Shorts player across more surfaces on YouTube to help people find new creators, artists and Shorts to enjoy. They will also begin to test and iterate on ads to better understand their performance.


YouTube has helped an entire generation of creators and artists turn their creativity into businesses. They’ve paid more than $30 billion to creators, artists, and media companies over the last three years, and they remain deeply committed to supporting the next generation of mobile creators with Shorts.



More exciting features to try with Shorts

Earlier this year, they previewed a new feature that will allow you to remix audio from videos across YouTube — which includes billions of videos — and they’re excited to share this experience is starting to roll out to everyone that has access to the Shorts creation tools soon. This means you can give your own creative spin on the content you love to watch on YouTube and help find a new audience. They can’t wait to see what you do with it! Creators and artists are in control and can always opt-out if they don’t want their long-form video remixed.


Not only that, but the team has been working to bring even more features to YouTube Shorts, with new things to try like:

  • Automatically add captions to your Short

  • Record up to 60 seconds with the Shorts camera

  • Add clips from your phone’s gallery to add to your recordings made with the Shorts camera

  • Add basic filters to colour correct your Shorts, with more effects to come in the future
