The Public Domain Remix competition was launched in France on the 4th of May as part of the OuiShare festival. The competition, organised by the Open Knowledge Foundation and Wikimedia France seeks to promote the public domain by demonstrating the versatility and utility of these works, and what they can be used to accomplish.
Participants are encouraged to embrace transmediality, and seek to be transformative in their approach to remixing. For example, converting literature to music or still images to video. The contest is as such divided into five categories: Arts, Literature, Music, Video and Hardware.
The competition will run till December 31st, 2013, and readers are encouraged to forward the information to anyone that might be interested in tackling this interesting creative challenge.
