Edward Sharpe – Child

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.” 

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s premiered the winning video on their Facebook page and on YouTube where it’s already received tens of thousands of views.

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!
