Howdy folks,

Big news! The Webby Awards have nominated you - the Vimeo Community - for a "Best Online Community" Award. Of course, we already know we have the best online community, but we might as well win an award and let the rest of the world know too!

As a nominee, we are also eligible to win a Webby People's Voice Award! However, we need your votes to do it! From now until April 29th, people can cast their votes in The Webby People's Voice Awards at

It would be super sweet if you could vote for us and tell all your friends to vote too :)

Let's win this thing!

Clicked and done. I sure owe ya Blake - the votes you helped get me helped win 10 grand with this film yesterday.
Every penny goes on the next one, so watch this space...


You want a community member to vote for his own community? This is like saying "I am the best". What is the point in voting then?

Daniel Hayek Staff

I think the point is to celebrate what we've managed to create here which is a supportive, creative community where a huge variety of people can interact in a civilized and fun environment.

I don't see anything wrong about acknowledging and commending an organization of people who have made each other happier while still being welcome to adding new members.

Enrique Pizarro

¡HEY! Really, I love Vimeo.
Always I liked that Vimeo that is a exclusive comunity, is to selective group of filmmakers, is a elite page and I feel always proud to be here.
But, I'm seeing that now this is being become a little more popular. I don't like it.
I think that this page not should become in a page popular to 'all the village', like Youtube (low profile). Should be to continue on the 'underground' and exclusive to selective people.
I hope that this bad don't continue and don't do it more big. I think that if this site would become in very popular thing, many people would let this site and would can go to other page similar (maybe I would do it).
I hope that this comment be very useful.



I agree Enriqe, I think vimeo is not the best community... it's just the coolest... I hope it'll keep going like that too...

Mo•Graph Plus

I agree with enrique.
i spend a loot of hours here in vimeo. and i love it. I follow the recomendations without a doubt of wasting my time. As a matter of fact, as i work in motion graphics , and i don LOVE all the work that i do, i upload here just my favourites (you may or may not agree with my selection LOL )

i voted anyway. becouse i don't see why this should become "popular" (in the bad sense of the word) as we keep showing good staff... the "out of place" material will just feel that... out of place!

Alan Wood

Voted. Vimeo is a great community!
