According to Meta, the content creators were selected because they’re breaking out amongst their communities online, and showcase a best-in-class approach to video formats, technology and interactive entertainment — creative qualities believed to be integral to the evolution of the Metaverse.

As cultural trends continue to be amplified through digital content and new avenues open for content creators to earn a living, they have been experiencing exciting growth to unlock new opportunities that will span the future of the internet – whether that’s building their own digital marketplaces, hosting immersive events face-to-face with fans around the globe, or collaborating with brands to promote new experiences.

“From experimenting with video content today, to building immersive worlds tomorrow that deepen the interaction with their fans and communities, our Creators represent a generation of voices that have the potential to make this vision a reality.” said Meta

Meta has also pledged to nurture careers of content creators by giving them access to cutting-edge tools, education and resources so they’re at the forefront of new opportunities and innovation.

All the Creators of Tomorrow will be brought together at this year’s Meta Creator Week in November, hosted at the iconic Tate Modern in London. They will be joined by other regional Creators at various stages of their careers to collaborate, learn from each other, and continue to find inspiration in the future of content creation on different platforms.
