 Video Mashup Contest With Prelinger Archives

Contest Video

Have you ever thought music from the Free Music Archive would pair nicely with all that great retro video ephemera in the Prelinger Archives? Here's your chance to show your vision in a contest we're calling "The Past Re-imagined As The Future." Enter before Nov. 4th and help us explore the possibilities of open digital archives.

Visit our contest portal for a fun how-to video, information about our winners screening at Anthology, pictures of our dashing panel of judges, and questions that are frequently asked. Two winners will receive an iThing! Plus, there's always the added prize that if you spend enough hours watching old timey videos, you just might find your 20's doppelganger.  — Andrea
