Three new student films on information sharing have been voted the best by a panel of new media experts, students, and librarians in the third annual Sparky Awards. Organized by SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) and adopted by campuses everywhere, the Sparky Awards contest calls on entrants to creatively illustrate in a short video the value of openly sharing
The winning videos offer another glimpse of the compelling student perspective on how open sharing fosters creativity, innovation, and solves problems. This year’s winners are:
GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Share what you’ve got
RUNNER UP: Ideas come together
ideas come together from Dani Johnson on Vimeo ( Produced by Danielle Johnson – Savannah College of Art and Design).
HONORABLE MENTION: Grow
