The first ever Vimeo Festival + Awards is less than three months away! We can almost hear the flashbulbs popping as the entire Vimeo community glides over a red carpet pointed straight towards immortality!
Okay, enough hyperbole. I'm here to announce this week's Weekend Project. If you've spent any time at all on Vimeo during the last couple of months, chances are you've seen one of the amazing videos we've featured on the site, promoting the Vimeo Festival + Awards. And if you haven't, boy do I feel sorry for you! Either way, they're all totally worth a look:
All of these promo videos were made by Vimeo users and are a testament to the unparalleled creativity and talent of our users. We're now extending a call to everyone on the site to make their own promo spot for the Vimeo Festival + Awards.
The rules are simple. Your video should be 30 seconds long (no more, no less.) It must end with the Vimeo Festival + Awards logo, which can be downloaded here. And it should embody the spirit of the event, celebrating video creators in a unique and interesting way.
There will be our usual prizes: The winner will take home a fully loaded Plus account or 25,000 HD Embeds if they are already Plus. And the runner-up will receive an extra 1 GB of upload capacity or 10,000 HD Embeds if they are already a Plus member.
In addition to these sweet prizes, the winner will have their video featured on the site along with the rest of the promo videos! This is an excellent opportunity to get your work out there.
Submissions are due Tuesday (7/20) at 11:59 PM (EST). Be sure to submit your video to the Weekend Project Group otherwise it will not be considered. Please note that the Community Staff will approve videos for inclusion into the Group and will also be selecting the winning videos.
Peace, love and Vimeo.
We have winners! I repeat: We have winners! But before I get to that, I just want to say how impressed the whole Vimeo Staff was with this batch of Weekend Project submissions. So impressed, in fact, that we've decided to be extra generous and name two winners and two runners-up!
That said, our two runners-up for this week's Vimeo Weekend project are [vimeo.com/spondylab]( SPDL labÂ° for their video [vimeo.com/groups/weekendproject/videos/13497821]( Vimeo Festival + Awards - eye lotion and MrH for his video [vimeo.com/groups/weekendproject/videos/13442027]( <a href=)">Vimeo Festival + Awards: Why We Make Stuff. Each runner-up will receive an extra 1 GB of upload capacity for their efforts!
And our two winners are Ovi Balc for his video [vimeo.com/groups/weekendproject/videos/13473161]( <a href=)">Vimeo Festival + Awards - Stencil and unlime for their video Vimeo Festival + Awards Promo. Both of them will receive a brand spanking new Plus account and their videos will each be featured on the site.
Congratulations to everyone who submitted. We hope to see you all at the big event in October!
