2013 was an amazing year for the Genero community. With over 2,000 videos published and more than 200 Staff Picks selected, selecting just one for Music Video of the Year was a daunting task for the Genero team!
We spent a very long time watching videos and deliberating (with not too much arguing) to get down to five runners ups and one winner. Really, all of our filmmakers are winners – your passion and creativity is hugely inspiring to us, and the videos you visualise and create are spectacular! But we do need to make our selections for the Awards, so:
Music Video Of The Year ($5,000)
A huge congratulations to We Are Cowboys!
“We really are blown away to have won this award. This video has been a bit tortured labour of love for us. We never thought that building a sci-fi prison in Tommy’s living room and decanting all his Dad’s crap from the garage into it would have resulted in us winning an award, but we’re delighted that it has. A massive shout out has to go to all our crew for supporting our weird vision, and also to the Genero community as a whole. There’s such amazing work submitted to Genero all the time, and we’re very proud to be a small part of such an inspiring group of people.” – Rich & Tommy (WE ARE COWBOYS)
Runners Up ($1,000)
And a big congrats to the 5 runners up for Music Video of the year: Lucilelucile and GDMDADM, BeatrizAbad, Hugo Goudswaard, CONTENTed, San Charoenchai! Their videos are exceptional, and you should watch them all!
