Don’t miss your chance, only two days left!

Submissions for Vimeo’s First Annual Festival and Awards have been pouring in, but one crucial entry is missing: YOURS! 

We wanted to remind you that there are only two days left to get your entry in for your chance at fame and fortune. That’s a Vimeo Award and a shot at $25,000 towards your next film. If you have premiered a video online between June 3, 2008 and July 30, 2010, you should be filling out your submission form right now. Don’t forget that Plus users get a discounted entry fee. For the price of a cup of coffee, you could give a young video a chance at success.

Maybe you looked at the list of judges before and thought to yourself, “Yeah, those judges are amazing, but world renowned recording artist M.I.A. is not among them.” Well now you are wrong, my friend! We’ve now got M.I.A. on board to judge the Music Video category, along with 

-Lawrence Lessig judging the Remix category (this guy is THE expert on the subject)
-Paola Antonelli, who is Senior Curator at The Museum of Modern Art, which you’ve probably heard of
-Rian Johnson, Sundance prize winner and writer / director of some amazing films like Brick and The Brothers Bloom
-Ted Hope, Producer on over sixty films such as 21 Grams, American Splendor, Happiness, the list goes on

We are not playing around when it comes to these judges. We’ve lined up one heck of a panel, so now do your part and submit your work before it’s too late. You can find all of the details and the submission form over at

Good luck!
