GIF-it-Up India!

All through July, we invite art and cultural heritage enthusiasts, GIF makers & lovers to re-interpret, and remix 13 artworks from the DAG Museum Collection.

DAG Museums, The Heritage Lab and Europeana invite you to participate in GIF IT UP India! Create interesting, fun GIFs by remixing and re-interpreting openly licensed artwork from DAG Museums. Winners will have their work featured online on the GIF-It-Up channel as well as The Heritage Lab. There are awesome prizes too!

We strongly believe that cultural heritage is community owned, and encourage people to have fun with art while communicating India’s history, culture and aesthetics.

Who can participate?


Anybody over the age of 9. Creating GIFs is a great way to develop digital skills & learn about copyright / fair sharing on the internet from a young age.¬†We do have Tutorials to help you. Whether you’re a first time GIF maker or an experienced animator, we welcome everyone to join. There are different categories for submission though!

  1. Choose an artwork from the collection
