VidCon Creator Certification Program

We're bringing back the VidCon Creator Certification Program — an exclusive opportunity open to Creator and Industry Track attendees! We've curated three categories of sessions — Production Skills, Audience Development, and Career Essentials — focused on helping you develop specific skill sets with the goal of educating you and enhancing your experience at VidCon. Led by industry innovators and leaders, each category of sessions will teach participants the latest and most valuable trends and skills to excel in the world of online video. By participating in a minimum of four sessions in a single category, you will earn the official VidCon Creator Certification.

How It Works

Take a look at the categories below and decide which sessions you would like to attend. At the end of any of the sessions listed below, attendees of any Creator Track Certification session must scan in with their RFID wristband before a session begins and scan out after the session is finished to prove completion of a session. Scanning will begin 15 minutes before a session starts and will end 20 minutes after the session is complete. The only way to get credit for a session is to get your RFID bracelet scanned both when the session begins and again once it ends!

If you complete four or more sessions within one category and get your bracelet scanned, the VidCon team will email you by Wednesday, July 20 to confirm your successful completion of the program. That email will also provide you with instructions on how to add this certification to your LinkedIn profile. You only need to complete one category to qualify, but feel free to complete as many as you'd like.
