Once again this year, the mediators for History 2.0 are competing in creativity and pedagogy in their video works in the 3rd edition of the History Youtubeurs Prize. And BNP Paribas is renewing its support for this event highlighting the approach to popularising historical knowledge via Google’s video sharing platform. In the 2020 selection, we can find both solid values and promising new talents… The choice will be hard to make, so vote until 15 November!
3,400 votes have already been counted for the 2020 History Youtubeurs Prize… And who’s your favourite video artist!
The best History Youtubeurs of the year will be honoured on 24th November, during a live video award ceremony broadcast from the Facebook and Youtube accounts of the Histoire de Lire Association. As in the previous edition, the Jury’s Prize, the Audience Prize and Young Talent Prize will reward the relevance and creativity of these video makers who fascinate the public.
If we find regulars of the selections among the 2020 nominees such as “Parlons Y-stoire” – “L’Histoire nous le dira”, Winner of the 2019 audience Prize, or Scherzando, we also note the presence of challengers such as “Metalleux curieux” or ” Thomas Laurent “. The subjects often treated in a playful and offbeat but no less relevant way reflect the richness of the production within this community. The origins of rugby and the history of ball sports, the empire of Al Capone’s crime, the construction of the myth of Rosie the Riveter, the unusual virtues of corn flakes, the Berlin Wall… Discover the original universe of Youtube history channels with thousands of subscribers and vote for your favourite video maker.
