K-Swiss’ Kenny Powers campaign, Manchester Orchestra’s “Simple Math” video, and A History of the Title Sequence were among the winners at the Vimeo Awards ceremony, which took place last Thursday night at NYU’s Skirball Center. Each winner received a grant of $5,000, except for directorial collective Everynone, who received an additional $25,000 for their Grand Prize-winning film, “Symmetry,” which you can watch above.

Awards judges included James Franco, Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari, Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood, and advertising impresario David Droga, amongst others.
