“MindMashup”: Call for Entries

SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) announces the Second Annual Sparky Awards, a contest that recognizes the best new short videos on the value of information sharing and aims to broaden the discussion of access to scholarly research by inviting students to express their views creatively.

The 2008 contest theme is “MindMashup: The Value of Information Sharing.” The Sparky Awards invite contestants to submit videos of two minutes or less that imaginatively portray the benefits of the open, legal exchange of information. Mashup is an expression referring to a song, video, Web site, or software application that combines content from more than one source.  Full information here.
