The Genero Awards recognise talent and vision in our amazing, global community of filmmakers.
For projects launched in 2012, Genero hand picked exceptional videos to become Genero Staff Picks. In addition, the winning videos from each project automatically became Genero Staff Picks. All Genero Staff Picks from the year then went into the running for the 2012 Genero Awards and a payment pool of $25,000!
