Meet the winners of GIF IT UP



Meet the winners of GIF IT UP

GIF IT UP is a fun event sponsored annually by the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) and in 2016 in association with Europeana and Trove (Australia).

GIF IT UP is DPLA’s annual international gif-making competition.  A GIF (or Graphics Interchange Format) is an image format that supports using multiple frames to create motion graphics in a continuous loop, allowing us to seemingly bring still images and other cultural heritage materials to life …

… GIF IT UP was created to promote appreciation of the public domain and creative engagement with digitized cultural heritage materials.  The most important part is to have fun and to share cool stuff in awesome ways.

Check out these winners here and use the link at the bottom to check out all the entries on Tumblr and GIPHY. “As you browse the entries, you will see an amazing array of cultural heritage materials re-mixed and re-made into fun, creative and inspired animated gifs.”

This contest provides a fun way to explore cultural heritage materials dynamically.



Which one is your favorite?

Are there any iconic genealogically-inspired recognizable images that might be converted to GIFs?
