Every autumn, GIF IT UP brings together creatives, culture lovers and GIF enthusiasts to explore and remix openly licensed cultural heritage collections and create brand new animated artworks. With the winners recently announced, we take a look at the highlights of this year’s edition of GIF IT UP.
Our annual GIF-making contest has now been running for seven years, with its profile and audience participation growing each year. The 2020 edition was no exception, and in this post, we take a look at the achievements of this year’s competition.
As GIF IT UP 2020 comes to a close, we have been delighted by the creativity of the entries, which demonstrate the wonderful ways that openly licensed content can be used and shared by audiences around the world. In this post, we let the GIFs answer the question: why open up digital collections for reuse?
