The shortlists for this year’s Vimeo Awards have been announced with public voting now open. The winners of each category receive a grant of $5,000.

The Vimeo Awards apparently had 15,000 entries from 147 countries this year, according to the organisers. A judging panel will decide the winners but with input from a public vote which is open until April 30.

Categories include Motion Graphics (for which Koji Aramaki created Wave Reflection, below and still shown top), Advertising, Experimental, Animation and Music Videos.

There will also be three honorary awards: the
 Social Change Award, for a project that has used online video for social impact; the
 Digital Maverick Award, for someone who has ‘changed the landscape of online video’; and the
 New Creator Award, given to ‘the newcomer who impressed us most during the past 18 months’.
