GIF IT UP

We’re joining this year’s GIF IT UP fun by encouraging you to create creepy GIFs inspired by #PageFrights images.

GIF IT UP is a challenge to find the best GIFs created from copyright-free heritage materials found in DPLA, DigitalNZ, Trove, or Europeana. We encourage you to create GIFs inspired by #PageFrights content shared by DPLA, Digital NZ, Trove, or Europeana participating institutions (click on each organization to see a list of participating institutions).

GIF IT UP entries will be accepted from 1 October – 31 October, 2016. Winners will be announced in mid-November. Prizes include a Giphoscope of the supreme winning entry and Amazon gift cards. Visit the DPLA website to learn more about the challenge and how to submit your GIFs. Starting October 1, you’ll be able to see this year’s entries on the 2016 GIF IT UP Tumblr.

To get your creative juices flowing, take a look at some creepy GIFs created as part of past 2014 and 2015 GIF IT UP challenges.
