An Archival Remix Contest 

Presented by IU Libraries' Moving Image Archive


This contest is now over. Please look for the next one Spring of 2024.

IU Libraries is thrilled to announce Media School undergraduate student, EVA STUART, as the FIRST PLACE WINNER of the 2023 Safer Together : An Archival Remix Contest! Eva's winning video, "Drive Safely," can be viewed here on Media Collections Online!

Two runner-up videos were also awarded! View Richard Jermain's, "Share the Road, Save a Life" and Srikar Devulapalli's, "Safer Together 2023"!

In Spring 2023, IU Libraries launched its first-ever archival remix contest with support from the IU Libraries Moving Image Archive. In response to the alarming number of bike and pedestrian accidents and deaths, participants were invited to create a short, compelling video using archival footage to raise awareness about street safety. 

All videos were judged by a Review Board in categories of originality, quality, appropriateness, and effectiveness of raising awareness around street safety. As first place winner, Eva received a prize of $2,000! As runner-ups, Richard and Srikar each received a prize of $500!
