CC Poland celebrates 6th birthday (with a competition!)

On 21st of June, 2011 Creative Commons Polska celebrated its 6th birthday. Over 100 collaborators and friends of our project took part at an event organized in the office of Centrum Cyfrowego Projekt: Polska. We begun with a CC Salon, during which we presented six organizations and projects. Each of them uses CC licensing in their work.

Open Street Map Polska – Polish chapter of the open map of the world
Filmaster – film lovers community
Hackerspace WAW – Warsaw’s first hacker culture space
Ośrodek Karta and its Digital Archive of Local Tradition – supporting grassroots digitalization of local culture
Fundacja Nowoczesna Polska and its Free Obligatory School Readings project
panGeneretaor – new media art group
We’ve also handed out T-shirts with the CC PL „Wkręć Się i Zacznij Tworzyć” graphic (a limited edition with a remix of the „Get excited and make things” graphic by Kamil Śliwowski). Today we are announcing an online continuation of this competition (details below).
After the salon we heard a concert by Krzysztof Cybulski – member of the panGenerator group and WEF (Warsaw Electronic Festival) – who played on bass guitar and a pseudobaroque led painting. After him DJ Volodymyr played a live set that combined elements of Ukrainian folk with modern electronic music, with visualizations generated live by Michał Szota. At the end DJ Kwazar played a short DJ set. (on the 21st of June Warsaw celebrated the Fête de la Musique – we were happy to take part!). The party went on late into the night.
We’d like to thank all those that came to our birthday and we’re happy that CC Poland has so many friends. See you next year at our next birthday party – and in autumn at the global CC summit in Warsaw.

Our birthday competition

For all those that could not come to our birthday and have a chance to win one of our new T-shirts, we have good news. We’re announcing a second, online part of our competition – during which you can win T-shirts with the  „Wkręć Się i Zacznij Tworzyć” logo (a remix of the Get Excited and Make Things graphic by Matt Jones, a CC NC-BY-SA licensed design).

In order to win a T-shirt please send us a link to a piece of work (a piece of music or a whole album, a photograph or even better a whole set, an article, a book, a blog, your webpage, etc.) that you recently made available under one of the Creative Commons licenses. In order to be eligible, you need to release the work between our birthday on the 21st of June 2011 and the ending date of 10th July. 10 T-shirts will be handed out to randomly selected authors of freely released works (5 from Poland, 5 international). Please send the links to kamil@creativecommons.pl, together with preferred T-shirt size, by midnight (CET) on 10th of July.

(If you’d like to release a work under a CC license, but don’t know how – visit the Creative Commons website!)
