The theme for the May Showcase is Stories about the past. Need some inspiration? Here are some content ideas, check out previous winners from 2010 and 2011 and the compelling 'A Grandmother' entry by Candy Elsmore entry, which won the Supreme Creative Remix Award. And don't forget that Auckland Libraries has some fabulous online heritage content including photo databases such as Footprints, Heritage Images and Local History Online.
To enter the competition all you need to do is take New Zealand open content and data and creatively use it to tell something totally incredible, this can be real or completely made up. It can be a new visualisation, a piece of writing, a video or any other creation that shows off your skills. The competition is also a great basis for kids school projects.
