Thanks to an exciting competition created by the Digital Kids Show, three young people could be in with the chance of a lifetime as it launches the search to find the next big YouTuber.

Three finalists will battle it out on their first job to bring all the action from the star- studded show to fans across social media.

The official vloggers will get to interview their favourite stars – from hugely popular YouTubers including AshDubh, Tomohawk, Nettyplays, Amy Lee, SmallishBeans, EthanGamerTV and LDShadowLady, to children’s TV favourites, Dick and Dom and Mr Bloom, and receive £100 gift voucher. They’ll also get to pick up some industry secrets on how to create an engaged YouTube channel with hints and tips from the YouTube stars.

To be in with a chance of winning, children have to create a short video to say why they’d be the ultimate Digital Kids Vlogger and who they’d love to interview.

Each winner will also win VIP passes to attend the show and £100 gift vouchers.
