Public voting for the 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards is open. In the Action sports category, there are a couple of skate shorts as well. Judges in the Action Sports category include Stacy Peralta, so it's not likely to be just about visual gimmicks and new technologies. Other categories' judges include Peter Greenaway and Nick Night among others, so it's definitely a pretty serious thing.

The 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards will take place from 7th-9th June 2012 in New York, where the winning videos will be unveiled and screened, as part of a wider programme of hosted conversations and educational workshops led by film and video luminaries.
