About

GIF IT UP is an annual gif-making competition for the most creative reuse of digitised cultural heritage material. It is run by Europeana in close cooperation with Digital Public Library of America, Digital NZ and Trove. In 2020 new content partners joined the fun – Japan Search and DAG Museums in Kolkata, while this year we welcome the Art Institute of Chicago.
