However, these projects are absolutely distinct from the 100 million dollars YouTube shorts fund launched a couple of months back which aims to grant 100 dollars to the creators of the most celebrated short as a reward.

The report further discloses, the two content managers added that these programs involved several proposals for the creators including posting 100 shorts within the 6 months duration for a $50,000 payment. Additionally, the platform was ready for amount negotiations.

Another program offers 80 shorts aggregately of which thirty should be created by the shorts app tools specifically.
