Vimeo is announcing its first online video awards show this October in New York City. Vimeo has always been supportive of independent filmmakers (with their offline meetups, etc.) and has done a great job at creating a site that showcases their work in a visually stunning way.
If you get a chance check out the awards and if you know a filmmaker have them submit their entry here.
“The Vimeo Festival & Awards is an acknowledgement of–and showcase for– the unprecedented level of creativity, skill and innovation coming from online video today,” said Dae Mellencamp, Vimeo’s General Manager. “We believe that the awards will not only honor the best work but, by pairing it with a festival, will also bring creative online communities together to learn from and be inspired by each other.”
This new awards show is also an interesting new promotional outlet for online video producers in the wake of the debacle that was the Streamy award show this year.
