Vimeo Awards Offer $25,000 Grant

Video-sharing site Vimeo is calling for entries to its first-ever Vimeo Awards. People from around the world can submit videos in 9 categories: Narrative, Documentary, Animation, Experimental, Music Video, Motion Graphics, Remix, Captured and Original Series. To top it all is the Vimeo Award which is the best of all categories to receive a $25,000 grant to produce new work.

Videos must have debuted online within the past two years to be considered. Vimeo will announce the winners during an awards ceremony at the close of its two-day festival on October 8-9 in New York City. Additionally, Vimeo will preview some of the finalists’ work at a screening event in Amsterdam in September.

“The Vimeo Festival & Awards is an acknowledgement of, and showcase for, the unprecedented level of creativity, skill and innovation coming from online video today,” said Dae Mellencamp, Vimeo’s General Manager. “We believe that the awards will not only honor the best work but, by pairing it with a festival, will also bring creative online communities together to learn from and be inspired by each other.”
