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?
With this year’s GIF IT UP competition currently taking place, Cristina Roiu talks to teenager Anamaria Şune about her experience of making GIFs and how the competition inspires educational engagement with digital cultural heritage.
