This year the competition has a special prize for GIFs relating to industrial heritage as part of Europeana’s ‘Europe at Work’ season. Work is an integral part of our lives and cultural history wherever we live, and the 2019 edition of GIF IT UP offers great inspiration for people to engage with that history by creating GIFs with images from Europeana’s new industrial heritage collection.

Another special category is for children and teenagers between 6 and 18. Creating GIFs is a great way to develop digital skills and learn about copyright and online sharing from a young age.

Have fun!
