I'm very excited about this hybrid Weekend Project/Contest because participating means you double your chances of winning something! Amstel Light teamed up with Vimeo to inspire you to share a creative narrative short film capturing how an open-minded approach lives in your town. Do you have a stellar art community, or an awesome underground music scene? How about some eclectic or eccentric characters in the community? Show us how your town is unique.
The coolest part of the Amstel Light contest is that the winner gets a round-trip ticket to Amsterdam to attend the Vimeo Festival and Awards event happening there in September. I'm going to be there, so you'll be in good company!
The winner of the Weekend Project will receive 2 extra gigs of upload space per week and free Vimeo Tshirt, or free Plus Account! The runner up will receive 1 gig of extra upload space per week.
To submit your entry in the "One Dam Good Town" Amstel Light contest, go to the Amstel Group page: vimeo.com/groups/amstel. Be sure that you read the Official Rules posted there. (Note that if you're not eligibile to enter the Amstel Light contest for some reason, you can still enter the Weekend Project.)
Be sure to also submit your video to the Weekend Project Group too, otherwise it will not be considered for the Weekend Project prizes.
Submissions to both the Amstel Light contest and the Weekend Project are due Aug 4, 2010.
Hope to see you in Amsterdam!
UPDATE- The winner of the Weekend Project is Kurt Larsen's video, Relax...Everyone's Welcome! and the runner up is Session 7 Media with The Walking Pesos, Live from the Streets of Seattle. Thanks for your submissions everyone!
