Presentation by Henk Vanstappen (PACKED) and Lotte Belice Baltussen (Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision) about the Open Culture Data initiative. Given at the DISH 2013 conference in Rotterdam, 3 December 2013.
The Dutch National Archives prize went to Tijdbalk.nl, made by Arjan den Boer. Users can make their own timeline with historical photos photos and add their own content as well.
First prize went to Muse app made by Femke van der Ster, Peter Henkes, and Jelle van der Ster. Muse app allows you to create your own work of art with cutouts from world-famous old masters: sceneries, people, animals, objects, and skies. You can bring the cutouts to your own canvas, pinch, move, duplicate them to make a collage, and share your masterpiece through Facebook, e-mail, put it on your camera-roll, or put it in an online Web gallery where it can be reviewed by art critics and other Muse-app creators.
The silver went to Histagram by Frontwise (Richard Jong), an app where you can make digital postcards based on historical pictures
Third prize went to SimMuseum by Hay Kranen, a Web game in which you can play a museum director, collect work of arts, and build your own museum.

STIMULATING COLLABORATION AND CREATIVITY
NEELIE KROES | VICE-president for the EC digital agenda & Open Data
“I urge cultural institutions to open up
control of their data [...] there is a
wonderful opportunity to show how
cultural material can contribute to
innovation, how it can become a driver of
new developments. Museums, archives
and libraries should not miss it.”
