We are pleased to announce the launch of Europeana Creative final challenge on Design! We're encouraging creative entrepreneurs to create products & applications that re-use Europeana content in innovative ways.


Europeana Creative project is once again looking for creative developers, designers, start-ups and other entrepreneurs to re-use Europe’s digitised cultural heritage from Europeana in innovative and creative ways!

As always, the best idea will receive a tailor made Incubation Support Package as a prize, helping to bring the winning product successfully to the market! The prize consists of specialist support measures delivered by a team of experts that can be from one of our EU|BIC spread out through Europe.

If you're a company/entrepreneur:

What should you create? 
We welcome a wide range of works for the Design Challenge, and appreciate contemporary and creative approaches to digital cultural heritage materials. For example, including but not limited to results of digital fabrication, media art, design objects, web/mobile applications and services.


Where to get content? 
Search for it on Europeana Labs! Use our APIs for your own developments! You can access the collections and incorporate them into things like apps, games, websites, even creating mash-ups using other APIs.

Need some inspiration? 
Europeana Creative has developed innovative Pilot Applications to demonstrate the things you can do with Europeana content and a little bit of imagination. 

Applications here!

The deadline for entries is January 15th, 2015. The best applications will be invited to pitch during our final Challenges Event in Manchester hosted by Future Everything Festival, where the winners will be selected.
