Streetwear’s favorite YouTubers, Danny, Elias, Shaq, and Dexter — aka PAQ — have teamed up with Highsnobiety to announce the inaugural Best Dressed YouTuber Awards. The BDY’s, as they’re called in short, are PAQ’s answer to the endless award shows on TV and will aim to bring attention to some of the steeziest content creators on the web.
To make sure everything is completely transparent, Highsnobiety and PAQ are letting the audience play a big part in choosing the winners. Fifteen nominees have been selected by PAQ and split into three categories (more on that below). The audience will then vote on which one YouTuber from each category advances to the final. Those three will be invited to “Judgement Day,” where they will present their best ’fits in front of a massive cast of judges, leaving one winner.
The 15 nominees are split into three groups of five, based on how many subscribers they have. The groups are called lightweight, middleweight, and heavyweight. This was done to level the playing field so that the YouTuber with the most subscribers doesn’t automatically win.
Watch the PAQ x Highsnobiety episode above to get a more detailed look at how you can participate.
Below are the nominees listed by category alongside a short introductory video so you can get to know them a little better.
