LoCloud Project Competition on Local History


The LoCloud project has launched a competition focusing on local heritage and culture. The competition has two categories:

1)       My Local Heritage: encourages people to explore a favourite place or part of their local history through the online resources in Europeana, and to present their experience online through web pages, a blog or even a video. The video should be no longer than 5-8 minutes. (See for example this video http://vimeo.com/62602290);

2)       My LoCloud Services: is for developers, aggregators and individual cultural institutions to showcase their use of the many services developed as part of LoCloud.  For information about the services: http://support.locloud.eu/

The deadline for the entries is 1st October 2015.

Competition winners will be announced at the LoCloud final event, which will be held in Amersfoort, Netherlands on 5th February 2016. Accommodation and travel costs will be covered by LoCloud for up to 2 people for each winning entry.

A prize of a tablet computer or smart watch will be presented to the winners and runners up of each category. Winning entries will be publicized by LoCloud and Europeana.
