Who Won the Mix & Mash May Showcase?

Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand is proud to announce the winners of the first showcase of Mix & Mash 2013, New Zealand’s great remix competition!

The open award has been won by Sadaf Lourie, Riccardo Scott, Jarred Bishop and Alex Gibson for ‘What Happened?’, an interactive children’s story. 

Our judges commended ‘What Happened?’ for its “outstanding illustrations” and described it as “a lovely concept that works on, quite literally, several levels, with a sweet, slightly goose-bumpy ending.”

The student award has been taken out by Travis, Evan and Jared Manning (aged 11, 9 and 6). Using stop motion animation, poetry, story writing and drawing, their video tells ‘The Story of Rangitoto.’

Our judges praised the story as “a dramatic and exciting retelling of the origins of a familiar piece of the Auckland landscape.”

Both entries will receive $500 in prizes, thanks to sponsors Orcon and Copyright Licensing New Zealand and our Mix & Mash partner, the Ministry of Education.

Ten entries in total were selected by judges for the May Showcase, and can be viewed at mixandmash.org.nz/showcase

All entries will be considered for the $2000 Mix & Mash Supreme Awards at the end of the year, sponsored by Squiz and supported by the National Library of New Zealand and the New Zealand Transport Agency.

Mix & Mash would like to thank our May Showcase judges Mark Osborne (Core Education), Jolisa Gracewood (writer for The Listener) and Dan Mills (Creative Commons).
