It’s 2014, and that means you can get an award from Robert DeNiro’s prestigious Tribeca Film Festival for making a Vine — and you could end up making money. Technology, huh?

Five Viners are being recognized by TFF today in the second annual #6SecFilms contest for their outstanding work in the looping six-second-film genre. Accolades are being presented in the categories of drama (yes, drama!), comedy, animation and genre. There’s also a #6SecFilms Audience Award.

Judged by viner extraordinaire Jerome Jarre, filmmaker Tiffany Shlain, comedian Julie Klausner, Levi’s president James Curleigh and model/manager Bethann Hardison, and picked from a short list of 40 Vines selected from 536 total entries, the winners are:

Animation: “Wrap Dancer” by Matt Willis, Australia

The prize for the #6SecFilms Festival isn’t just the prestige of knowing you’re practically a Vine celeb. It’s a meeting with GrapeStory, Gary Vaynerchuk’s Vine ad agency, which pays Viners to use their talents to create ads for Trident.
