REMIX | Art from the Archives Contest

REMIX art contest

REMIX | Art from the Archives is a contest to inspire literal and figurative out-of-the-box ideas for cultural heritage collections. Archives aren’t just about serious research—they can be about serious (or not so serious) art! Redaction poetry, GIFs, collages, coloring pages, memes, and other digital interventions are all ways to remix.

To enter REMIX | Art from the Archives, craft your submission with materials from the Virginia Archives Month 2016 Flickr album. Reimagine or reinterpret the source material through your personal artistic lens. You can enter up to three submissions between September 1 and October 14, 2016. Submissions will only be accepted digitally (here), though you may choose to print and manipulate the source material through a variety of artistic methods. Take a photo of your finished product for the submission.

All entries will be judged on creativity and originality of entry. All eligible entries that meet the criteria outlined in the Submission Guidelines will be showcased on the REMIX Tumblr and otherwise celebrated via the Interwebs. Prizes include a $100 Amazon gift card! Learn more about the prizes & guidelines here
