Here is the list of winners of YouTube Works Awards 2021

Find out who are the new YouTube Gold Creators in 2021 and winning video ads of the YouTube Works Awards Malaysia 2021.

Screens are capturing a greater share of attention nowadays as videos are playing a more valuable role in our lives. On YouTube, people have been using videos to learn how to do things themselves, to manage their physical and emotional well-being, and even find community. While these unique innovations are spurred by our needs of quarantine, the popularity suggests that it is here to stay.

This could also mean that brands and advertisers have more opportunities to engage with customers online, although it remains a challenge to stand out in a sea of content. Throughout the years, brands and marketers have continued to redefine how they connect with Malaysian consumers through the art of video storytelling. From the heartwarming to the thought-provoking, and everything else in-between — we’ve seen how creative video content can not only inspire, but drive equally powerful results. Marking its sixth year in Malaysia, YouTube Works Awards celebrate and champion the brilliant minds behind some of Malaysia’s most innovative and effective campaigns on YouTube the past year.

The year 2021 also saw our club of Gold Creator Award recipients growing to 79, from 58 in 2020. Creators such as mukbanger Isaac Osman, social media personality Aqil Zulkiflee, food vlogger Che Nom, as well as celebrity singer Dato' Sri Siti Nurhaliza were among the 21 creators that have successfully reached 1 million subscribers. Meanwhile, there were more than 540 Malaysian channels with more than 100k subscribers on YouTube in 2021.

The local YouTube community also celebrated a number of creators and videos that have touched Malaysians in many ways. Early in the year, a music video featuring 26 healthcare workers singing the popular Man Bai hit 'Kau Ilhamku' had captured the hearts of Malaysians. Then we saw Malaysia's animated superhero BoBoiBoy garner an impressive 3 million views for an extended episode that was uploaded within 24 hours.

“Last year, we were pushed to our limits as we endured MCOs after MCOs. Yet through it all, millions of Malaysians have turned to YouTube to watch content that brings them joy, with watchtime growing a solid +30% year on year,” said Loh Ben Jern, Head of YouTube, Malaysia.

“And what’s an award show without submissions? Thanks to all of you, we’ve received over 300 highly competitive submissions. To bring our YouTube Works Awards up a notch this year, we’ve partnered with Kantar Malaysia to ensure that our evaluations run at the highest quality.”

The event saw Pizza Hut Malaysia emerged as winner for ‘Ad of the Year’ award for its campaign entry So Light , So Tasty, which also won the award for Best Collaboration: Brand & Creator, where it features hilarious spoofs of popular travel scenes with top creators, capitalizing on their reach and appeal with Pizza Hut's target audience.
