GIF Open Call #2

We're looking for more Good GIFs

This open call is closed 

Good GIFs are fun and smart. To further explore this rich visual language of our digital presence, IMPAKT launched an open call to artists and creators to send us their best GIFs. This month’s winner: Anja Malec! Congratulations!

With her GIF Digitally Born, Anja Malec responds to the theme ‘Cyborg Futures’. Malec:

“In the future, all humans will be born artificially. Together, the biological body and computational genesis complete the development of a new human – a cyborg newborn. Through computational genesis, we are born as one and wired into the infinity of time and space.”

Do you have an original idea for a GIF? Submit your GIF to before 29 May and your GIF might be featured in our newsletter. 

The call is open to artists, photographers, designers, creators and anyone interested in sharing their work or have interest in animated GIF format. The call is open to people of any country, age, profession and nationality.

There is no entry fee.
The winning GIFs will be presented in our newsletter and the creator will receive fee of €200,-
