The Vlogstar Challenge seeks to inspire and establish a new generation of media influencers from across London and Essex. Now in its fifth year, this unique training initiative and competition gives 16-25 year olds the relevant technical and creative skills they need to create their own vlogs, develop their voice and share their passions with new audiences.


Thank you to all who have submitted their vlogs into our 2020 competition! Please be aware that we are no longer accepting submissions.

We look forward to our Virtual Grand Final held by YouTube which will be taking place online in November 2020.

Our Online Resource Pack is currently being updated which will include new & improved content! This will be available from mid-Nov.

Media Trust is all about giving young people particularly from diverse backgrounds a stronger voice. This programme gives them the skills and opportunity to shine a light on the communities they come from and the causes they care about. 

Bella roberts, 2019 vlogstar challenge winner

This is crazy, I’ve never won anything like this before. I hope this brings me towards my journey of becoming a film director and I want to thank you all and everyone I met through doing this. Something only needs to be as hard as you think it should be.

grace f victory, body-positivity YouTuber

My hopes for everyone that took part is to feel their passion can come to life, to have the confidence and the resilience to go out into the world with the experience they’ve had doing this. This is something they can call their own and no one can take it from them.
