Celebrating World IP Day and digital creativity with memes

17 May 2016

To celebrate World Intellectual Property Day, UCT’s Research Contracts & Intellectual Property Services (RCIPS) is holding a meme competition sponsored by the National IP Management Office (NIPMO). The goal is to create a dialogue about where people get their digital content and why they need to be aware of image licencing.

The theme of the competition is Digital Creativity – Culture Re-imagined! It aims to explore the way in which cultural works cross borders through digital media, inspiring the creation of new global cultures. The focus is on intellectual property ownership in these works.

The competition is open to all students and staff, who can submit up to three memes that meet the competition criteria.

The closing date of the competition is 19 May 2016.

The winners will be announced on 27 May 2016.
