Yes. Now is our time. And make no mistake, various political, social and commercial entities want nothing more than to return to the time of the passive consumer.
I'm not saying you have to be active if you do not want to. There is nothing wrong with just consuming content.
I'm just particular about what I want to see and hear. It ain't necessarily on broadcast or cable television. It isn't just regurgitated content dispensed from Hulu or Amazon. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
But if you want to create and bypass the gatekeepers then what could it hurt to check out the action in New York in June?
Just saying is all.
Now I'm not much for contests and stuff but there will be an award ceremony with cash money grants for those that need a little sugar to make future magic.
This is a promotional Vimeo video about the awards.
So if that has got you curious then head over to the Rules and get to studying. There is a lot you have to understand before you can enter such as:
- You have have to be old enough to enter.
- There is an entry fee of $20 if you are one of the teeming masses. If you are a Vimeo Plus or Pro member it is $5 unless you live in Arizona, Maryland, North Dakota, and Vermont in which case Vimeo will kick back the entry fee.
- The video must conform to the video compression guidelines, so no .wmv, xvid or ogg vorbis.
- It must be an original work.
Could be fun.
