We are proud to finally announce the winners of our Get Creative DML challenge. In this challenge, kids were asked to use Photo Booth to creatively illustrate their artistic side. Photos could have been taken with or without friends and once completed, were edited to create illustrations of movement, cool backgrounds, or colorful affects that enhance the photo’s overall look. Judges took a look at all entries and decided that Angelo and Danielle created pictures with slightly more creativity than the other projects. This is not to say that the other projects were not talented, as the arrival at the final decision was not an easy task by any means. Angelo and Danielle both received USB flash drives that are attached to animated characters like Tweety and the Tasmanian Devil. Hopefully by providing them with flash drives for prizes, we will encourage them to use the lab more and save some of their future products on them as well. Check out the winning photos from Angelo and Danielle below.
As we look to spread the word about the Skokie Public Library’s new Youth Digital Media Lab, we thought it would be helpful if we hosted some contests using the different programs our new Apple Mac computers have to offer. From Photo Booth all the way to IMovie, the children enjoy exciting opportunities to let their creative minds run astray. We encourage all kids that come into the lab to get involved with our DML contests so as to partake in friendly competition with their peers. Friendly competition is something I believe is necessary to help raise our participation levels here in the new Digital Media Lab, and with technology always on the rise, these kids will prove to be somewhat more advantageous due to their familiarity with these products.
