Radiohead and aniboom.com launched the “In Rainbows animated video contest” March 17th. Over 1100 submissions later Radiohead have chosen the Winners from the 5 remaining finalists. Radiohead chose 4 Winners instead of just one grand winner. The band were so impressed by the standard of the videos that they contributed an extra $30,000 to the prize pool, making the total $40,000 - giving 4 winners $10,000 each, and the chance to create a full length video based on their clip. The winning videos and details can be found at http://www.aniboom.com/radiohead.
