The full run-down of brilliant winners from this year's Vimeo Festival Awards

8 June 2012


Debates will always rage over the merit of creative awards and the value of pitting diverse projects against each other, but at the very least they act as interesting bellwethers of the Zeigeist. This is especially true of the Vimeo awards which has the admirable ambition of recognising the very best work uploaded on the site across 13 categories.

The gongs were handed out in New York last night with Everynone’s Symmetry (above) taking the grand prize. A simple idea executed beautifully and packing an unexpected pathos, it’s not only a worthy winner but also reflects the current taste for anti-slick understatement.

Elsewhere the animation prize went to Malcolm Sutherland’s haunting otherworldly Umbra, it was a thrill to see The History of the Title Sequence take Best Motion graphics and the hilariously direct K-Swiss Kenny Powers anti-ad scooped the advertising prize.

Well done to all the winners, enjoy them all below…
