Launching the LoCloud competition

The LoCloud competition is underway!

Are you a curator or volunteer from a local cultural institution, a local historian or student? Have you used Europeana to explore your interests in local heritage? Then why not share your story in a web page, a blog or a short video and enter the My Local History strand of our competition.

My Local History is being promoted across Europe by our partners who have set up websites to encourage entries from people within their countries. Its focus is on local heritage and culture, so we anticipate entries in many languages with some great visual resources!  You can find out more about the competition “in your country” on the Competition pages of the project website.  Winners of each national competition will be nominated to the international jury with a chance of winning a tablet computer and attending our final project event.  We will publicise all the winning entries via LoCloud and Europeana #mylocalhistory.

Are you a developer, aggregator or cultural institutions using LoCloud services and applications? Have you used LoCloud Collections to create an exhibition?  Are you using the LoCloud APIs for your application?  Then why not showcase your results in the My LoCloud Services strand of our competition with the chance of winning a smart watch #mylocloudservices .

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.  All short-listed entries will be promoted on the LoCloud website.
