Winning stories that remix & mashup

DigitalNZ, Creative Commons Aotearoa NZ and the National Library of NZ have proudly announced the winners and selections for the May Showcase of Mix & Mash 2013. 

10 amazing works from Kiwis of all ages were hand picked by judges Jolisa Gracewood, Mark Osborne and Dan Mills to receive prizes and go in for Supreme Awards. The collection of tales were singled out for conveying great story-lines about the past by remixing or mashing up open NZ content and data. 

May Showcase Favourites were a data driven storybook for kids' called "What Happened?" and the student made remix video "The Story of Rangitoto " which both picked up $500 prizes. 

What Happened?

May Showcase storytellers found open materials to use from DigitalNZ content partners like Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland Libraries and the Papers Past project. See Mihimihi by Graham Jensen and An Ideal Spot to Spend the Day by Paul Left for some excellent DigitalNZ citations.
