Please complete this YouTube Official Artist Channel (OAC) Request form to convert your standard YouTube channel and merge your artist Topic channel into an Official Artist Channel.

We can assist you in transforming one of your YouTube channels into an Official Artist Channel (OAC) through the following procedure:

  1. Ensure that your channel meets the minimum requirements for an OAC:
    1. Your channel must represent only one artist or band.
    2. You must have at least 3 official music releases distributed through Watershed Pro.
    3. There are additional requirements indicated here, as provided by YouTube.
  2. Please fill out the OAC request form if you meet the above requirements.
  3. It takes 1-3 months for YouTube to process this request.
  4. YouTube will not confirm when the channel has been transformed into an OAC. You will need to keep monitoring this yourself.
