Last week at NYU's Skirball Center, web video platform Vimeo hosted an awards show honoring the best in web-native video.  The platform, known for no ads and an interface that puts the spotlight on filmmaking craft, gave its awards to a series of videos that are bringing innovation to the online video world.

The winner of each category received a $5,000 prize from Vimeo, and the Grand Prize winner, "Symmetry" by Everynone took home the $25,000 grand prize. The Vimeo Awards occurred for the first time in 2010. Four new categories, Action Sports, Advertising, Fashion and Lyrical, were added for the 2012 edition.
