Announcing the Winners of the Mix & Mash 2013 May Showcase!


Announcing the Winners of the Mix & Mash 2013 May Showcase!

Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand is proud to announce the winners of the first showcase of Mix & Mash 2013, New Zealand’s great remix competition.

The open award has been won by Sadaf Lourie, Riccardo Scott, Jarred Bishop and Alex Gibson for ‘What Happened?’, an interactive children’s story.

Our judges commended ‘What Happened?’ for its "outstanding illustrations” and described it as "a lovely concept that works on, quite literally, several levels, with a sweet, slightly goose-bumpy ending."

The student award has been taken out by Travis, Evan and Jared Manning (aged 11, 9 and 6). Using stop motion animation, poetry, story writing and drawing, their video tells ‘The Story of Rangitoto.’

Our judges praised the story as “a dramatic and exciting retelling of the origins of a familiar piece of the Auckland landscape."

Both entries will receive $500 in prizes, thanks to sponsors Orcon and Copyright Licensing Limited and our Mix & Mash partner, the Ministry of Education.

Ten entries in total were selected by judges for the May Showcase, and can be viewed at mixandmash.org.nz/showcase

All entries will be considered for the $2000 Mix & Mash Supreme Awards at the end of the year, sponsored by Squiz and supported by the National Library of New Zealand and the New Zealand Transport Agency.

Mix & Mash would like to thank our May Showcase judges Mark Osborne (Core Education), Jolisa Gracewood (The Listener) and Dan Mills (Creative Commons).

Organised by Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand, DigitalNZ and the National Library of New Zealand and enabled by a range of sponsors and partners, Mix & Mash 2013 celebrates the creative reuse of data and content from New Zealand’s rich cultural heritage.

Keen to enter? Mix & Mash wants all New Zealanders, young and old, to tell new stories by adapting and remixing public domain or openly licensed content and data.

As Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand Public Lead Matt McGregor puts it, “with digital technologies and the Internet, it’s become easier than ever for people to remix and reuse work they find online. Increasingly, students—and adults—are building on the work on others, to make exciting, innovative and surprising works of their own.

“We want to encourage and celebrate this creativity. By remixing New Zealand’s Creative Commons licensed and out-of-copyright data and content, kiwis are actively—and legally—engaging with their own cultural heritage.”

Entries for the August Showcase are now open, with prizes provided by sponsors and partners Copyright Licensing New Zealand, NIWA and the Ministry of Education.

Judges for the August Showcase are Eric Steuer (Creative Commons), Brenda Wallace (Weta Digital), and Claire Amos (The Digital Citizenship Project).
