Submissions are now being accepted in a total of 13 categories, four of which – advertising, action sports, fashion, and lyrical are new for 2012. A $5,000 grant will be awarded to the winner of each corresponding category and a very generous $25,000 grant will land in the lap of the “Best Video Award” winner. The entry period will last until February 22, 2012 as long as you meet all the rules requirements and have $20 to spare per video on the submission fee. That number drops to $5 for Vimeo Pro and Plus members.
Head on over to the Vimeo Festival + Awards page for all the fine print and up to the minute updates including the yet to be completed list of judges. If you happened to miss last years show, it can be viewed in its entirety below. Good luck!
