Congratulations to our May Showcase winnersCome check out the fabulous selections for Mix & Mash in May!
How to enter
Start creating a story that is about the PRESENT day. You can tell it however you like – as a video or short story, a web display, infographic or app. It really is up to you. It might be fanciful or factual, but it must be compelling.
Compelling, eh? What counts as compelling?
Let our May Showcase winners fill you in! The team behind What Happened? told us a story about the PAST
And so did the young Jared brothers:
Come see ten fabulous winners and selections from the May Showcase.
Here’s where it gets interesting: Your story must reuse at least ONE piece of NZ open content or data. This could be an image from DigitalNZ, a poem from the NZ Electronic Text Centre, a government report or data from data.govt.nz, for example.
Open what? Who with the right?
Put that Michael Jackson track down! There’s a world of content and data out there that’s freely usable – it’s either not under copyright anymore, or the creator’s opened it up for this kind of thing. Isn’t that nice of them? We’ve found a bunch of stuff you can use right now. What are you waiting for?
Submit your work by 5pm 9th August
As soon as you’re ready, fire your entry into us. Our three August judges will put it under the microscope. If Brenda Wallace (Weta Digital), Eric Steuer (Creative Commons) and Claire Amos (Digital Citizenship Project) like what they see, you’re a winner.
Yesss! What am I in for?
Prizes aplenty – from $50 all the way up to $2000 for the supreme winners! And the adoration of the internet, of course.
