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).

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
