Introducing Your September “On The Rise” Nominees

Each month, we identify four YouTube Partners who are growing their subscribers but haven’t yet reached the 100,000 subscribers mark for our On The Rise program. You vote for your favorite in the top right corner of the YouTube Global blog, and the winner will be featured on the YouTube homepage and videos page.
This September, our nominees are here to help you learn and play. So go grab a football, arts supplies, headphones or popcorn and check out the nominees are below. Then vote for your favorite in the top right corner by September 22 at 6pm PT, and we’ll announce the winner on September 29.

Anthony Fantano is a public radio host and an avid independent music fan. For the last two years, he’s been reviewing all kinds of songs and albums from “music you like and music you hate.”

Jake Jarvi is a writer/videographer for luxury lifestyle magazines by day, but his real passion is film.
