Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have chosen the winner for the project to make videos for any song from their new album, Here!
A huge congratulations to, Michal Byra (Poland), whose video has been selected for the song Child. Michal will be paid $5,000 and his video will be the official music video for Child!
Here’s what Alex and the band said about the project:
“Firstly, a huge thanks to all who contributed videos – it has been humbling receiving such an array of impassioned work. Tho we have singled out three, I truly hope that the process of making every one of these videos has been a rewarding experience for everyone who involved themselves. I know that each video will exist forever in its own right and I thank you all for gifting us with these timeless creations. As for our three picks, we watched them in a small room, all of us together, and laughed and cried. Thank you very much for these eloquent, thoughtful, daring videos.”
The two runners-up have also been selected and notified so look out for those announcements, as well as the finalists and Genero Awards nominees, coming soon!
