You've got opinions, right? Because at this moment, we really want to hear them. We just unfurled the shortlists for the 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards, and public voting is officially open! We kindly exhort you to watch a gaggle of great videos and help us figure out which are the greatest.
It's ridiculously easy:
Select a category that entices you
Watch all the videos in that category
Vote for the one that moves you most
You can vote once per day per category between now and April 30, so if there are videos you especially adore, give 'em lots of votes! And don't forget to share your voting activity on Facebook, Twitter, etc. - that's how people find out about cool stuff these days.
Each category will be judged by industry experts, the 2010 winner in that category, and of course you. And speaking of judges, we've got more incredible ones on board: acclaimed directors/producers/artistic geniuses Mike Figgis and Peter Greenaway are evaluating the Experimental category; free-spirited filmmaker Casey Neistat has his sights set on Narrative; and pro surfer Alana Blanchard is assessing Action Sports.
Finally, we'd never forgive ourselves if we didn't tell you that tickets for the Vimeo Festival + Awards are now available. Our sorta-annual shindig takes place June 7-9 in NYC, and you can be there for the unveiling of the world's best videos, plus get involved in our manifold conversations, workshops, and screenings. It's one part film festival, one part tech meetup, one part educational conference, and one part flying trapeze act. We hope to see you there! Get tix >
