While many of us might only think of the GIF as the amateur comedian’s best friend, the format has been around for 25 years. To celebrate this unique and dynamic medium Paddle8 and Tumblr will host an online call for submissions, the winners of which will be exhibited at Art Basel Miami Beach in December. The online open call submission via Tumblr ends November 7.
Paddle8 and chief Selection Council member Johnny Misheff have put together a who’s who from various creative industries to make the selections – including Michael Stipe, the Rodarte sisters, Ryan Trecartin, RoseLee Goldberg, Nicola Formichetti, Richard Phillips, James Frey and Vinoodh Matadin & Inez van Lamsweerde. Each member will choose 25 GIFs in their individual category.
Get Gifing everyone.
