DPLA’s GIF IT UP Competition

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) announced GIF IT UP, an 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.

To get the scoop on this year’s GIF IT UP contest, visit the GIF IT UP website. Be sure to tag @YOURATLA so we can see your awesome work!

The DPLA brings together the riches of America’s libraries, archives, and museums, and makes them freely available to the world. It strives to contain the full breadth of human expression, from the written word, to works of art and culture, to records of America’s heritage, to the efforts and data of science. Learn more.
