GIF IT UP is a creative competition taking existing video or images from public archives and making it move!

This year's GIF IT UP competition is being hosted by the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).

The competition runs from 1-31 October 2016 and is open to entries from around the world using source material from the four GIF IT UP partners: DPLA, Europeana, DigitalNZ, or Trove.

How it works

To enter GIF IT UP, you need to make a GIF with material from one of the four partners, or a combination GIF with material from several of these sources. Your source material must be clearly marked as: in the public domain, have a ‘no known copyright restrictions’ statement or have a Creative Commons license which allows for reuse. You have until 31 October to enter up to three GIFs, using still images or video.

Before you start making your GIF, be sure to read the rules and guidelines on the submissions page.
