The Creative Commons has made an announcement of their Art Contest named Open Culture Remix. This Contest is being conducted to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Creative Commons License, to share better heritage throughout the world. Better cultural heritage sharing has the ability to unleash enormous creative potential as people remix content in new and unique ways. Their goal for #CCSharesCulture is to highlight the incredible creativity that open access to cultural heritage can inspire. They may demonstrate how open access has a positive impact on contemporary culture and innovation outside of institutional contexts, as well as how it is a true engine for cultural and social progress. The Contest is open to everyone who is aged 18 years or older and from anywhere from the world. The theme for this Contest is kept as “Love Culture? Share Culture!”.
Theme conformance, theme expression, originality, inventiveness, quality, artistic expression, personal expression, aesthetic appeal, and the overall effect will be used to rate the artworks. A panel of 5 judges, open culture and/or open creative experts, will also consider the brief descriptions that accompany the artworks. Total ten winners will be selected for awards, where 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will receive cash prizes of $1000, $500, and $250; the other six will receive honorable mentions; and more. Among those finalists, a winner will get selected for the public choice award by public votes.
