New Tech Startup brings film fanatics their own Movie Awards!
“We aim to rejuvenate the entertainment movie awards industry by creating a fully open platform which lets movie fans throughout the world vote for any movie released each year. We are also extending the awards category list to allow deserving entertainment people to get more exposure. We have 30 categories including the major ones like Best Movie or Actress and some new ones that we think are relevant like Best Cast Ensemble or Best Poster”, states Tom, founder of vimaws. “We never really liked the current system which creates a new award-ready genre of movies being launched at the end of every year. Rarely a film released before September gets picked up for an award nomination.”
Welcome to the academy! Everyone is a nominee. By joining Virtual Movie Awards, users will be linked to their friends on other social networks and encouraged to share their yearly picks together. You can also look for #vimaws on Twitter to try and follow the trends! Every week new movies are added to the database until the end of the year. User can change their picks at any time until voting is closed for the current season. Global votes remain largely confidential with only a few indicators of the awards trends. Winners will be announced on February 8, 2015.
“We have big plans for our own award show! Of course to make it as cool as we envision it, it will depend on how the public supports the site. If the success is there, we will have plenty of new ideas to share with our users on the web and on other media platforms and maybe some gifts too... Stay tuned!”
