Dear GIF-makers and GIF-lovers! Time to reveal the winners of GIF IT UP 2017!
Huge thank you to all the participants! It was a very tight competition and we were blown away by the amount of imaginative and amusing creations that were submitted – you can browse through all the GIFs at bit.ly/GIFITUP2017 and GIPHY.
Thanks again to our great judges: Ari Spool (GIPHY Arts), Zuzanna Stańska (DailyArt), and Adam Green (The Public Domain Review) for taking time to evaluate over 150 entries! And a special shout-out to the other participating GIF IT UP digital libraries: DPLA, Trove, and DigitalNZ – this cross-continent cooperation was fun on its own.
The Grand Prize, runners up and First-time GIF-maker Award were determined by the judges, while the People’s Choice Award was determined by most public votes. So let’s meet the most GIF-ted participants this year:
