We are thrilled to announce the 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards. The Vimeo Festival + Awards
are a celebration of the best original videos premiered online and submissions are now open.
This isn’t just a Vimeo thing, it’s a video thing – everyone is invited to participate. It’s not just an
online thing, either. The 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards will culminate in an offline event held in
the real physical world next June.
Grants of $5,000 will be awarded to the winners of each category, and a grant of $25,000 will
be presented to the winner of the Grand Prize Award. The 2010 Vimeo Awards winners have
all enjoyed dramatic success following their achievements at last year’s festival. Overall and
Documentary winner Eliot Rausch attracted a great deal of media attention, even landing a spot
on the Carson Daily Show. He is now in post- production on his latest documentary – a film he
was able to produce with the grant money he received from winning the 2010 Vimeo Festival +
We encourage everyone from amateurs to pros (and especially students) to submit any original
work that premiered anywhere online between July 31, 2010 and February 20, 2012, or any
original work that has never been premiered. Who knows, you might just win.
