The Vimeo Festival + Awards aim to honour the best original videos that have been posted online within various genres. This year the festival has added 4 new exciting categories to the roster, including advertising, action sports, lyrical and fashion. Within each category Vimeo selected a shortlist of videos that they felt stood out from the rest of the field and invited a select few practitioners from within the industry to cast their experienced eyes over the field.
This year SHOWstudio director Nick Knight was invited to give his opinion on the entries within the fashion category, alongside Nicola Formichetti and Humberto Leon (co-owner and creative director of Opening Ceremony).
As well as taking consideration of the judges' opinions, Vimeo also made the shortlist available to the public, allowing users to vote for their favourite. The shortlist is still available online, and will soon be whittled down to 4 winners and announced before the festival starts on June 7th in New York.
Log on to Vimeo to pick your favourite, and see if you can tell which video is likely to be victorious. Unfortunately we can't reveal which video Nick voted for, but we'd be interested to hear which ones are your favourites from the group.
