Mash my kitsch up

While Hillary Clinton's Wellington Declaration is busy swamping the PublicACTA Wellington Declaration in Google rankings, the Creative Freedom Foundation highlights a Mix and Mash competition during November:

Mix and Mash: The Great NZ Remix and Mashup Competition was launched last night at the Mix & Mash Mini, and we’re thrilled to announce that a total of $30,000 in prizes is up for grabs including cash prizes of up to $10,000, and great gear including a Macbook Pro & MinoHD Flip video cameras.
Mix & Mash is the biggest push ever to get people using NZ digital content and data, and is being run to assist New Zealand organisations to release their content and data for reuse, and to encourage the creation of new tools, services, experiences and artworks using this material – from iPhone apps to digital stories to things the organisers haven’t even thought of yet.
Check out all the categories at and get making now!
Entries close 30 November.
I'm particularly keen on the comic mash-up category featuring art by Brunswick the Rat and Jitterati creator Grant Buist.
