LoCloud is a Best Practice Network that brings together a strong group of technical partners with network and regional aggregation service providers, and a number of partners representing specialised museums, public libraries and archives. LoCloud’s overall goal is to support small and medium-sized institutions in making their content and metadata available to Europeana and provides guidance, training and support services to meet the needs of content providing institutions.
Now, LoCloud is launching an international competition focussing on local heritage and culture. The competition has two strands:
- My Local Heritage – invites people to explore a favourite place or part of their local history through Europeana and to present their experience online in webpages, a blog or video.
- My LoCloud Services – invites developers, aggregators and individual cultural institutions to showcase their use of LoCloud services.
The finalists will be invited to present their entries at the LoCloud final event, which will be held in Amersfoort, Netherlands on 5th February 2016.
Winners of the My Local Heritage competition will receive a prize of a tablet computer; winners of the My LoCloud Services competition will receive a prize of a smart watch. All winning entries will be publicised by LoCloud and Europeana.
