The contest is open to videos in nine categories, including Documentary, Narrative, Music Video and Original Series. Two finalists will be selected in each category by a panel of judges, then the jury will select one  Best Video winner who will receive a $25,000 grant to produce new work. 

Vimeo has so far named 19 judges who will review entries in different categories. Designer Neville Brody, Ricky Van Veen of Connected Ventures and Ze Frank of the daily video blog "The Show" were recently added to the roster. Other judges  include directors David Lynch, Roman Coppola, Lucy Walker and Morgan "Super Size Me" Spurlock, multimedia artist and composer DJ Spooky, Motionographer.com founder Justin Cone and photographer Vincent Laforet. 

The awards competition is part of the lead-up to a two-day festival of screenings and parties to be held in New York October 8 and 9.
