In addition to our regular partners DPLA, Trove and DigitalNZ, this year we were excited to welcome two new partners, Japan Search and DAG Museums. Japan Search gives access to digitised collections from cultural institutions across Japan, and Kolkata’s DAG Museums collects 20th century artists from India. The superb content and active participation of both partners brought a more international flavour to this year’s contest.
The competition was also covered in media outlets from various countries, extending the reach of the competition even further. This year, GIF IT UP was covered in Daily Art Magazine, Vien , Club Innovation, EuropaPress, Eldiario.es, Nobbot, Netart, vagabondageautourdesoi and Curationist.
