Upcoming competitions

Hackathon

A hackathon will be held for secondary school students across the project countries to enhance their digital skills and awareness of the role such skills can play in heritage preservation projects through a case study of Jewish cemeteries! They will work with the digital data gathered by the consortium partners, solving problems that might involve working with 3D models, visualising potential project designs (virtual restoration projects, memorial designs etc.), or creating immersive storytelling experiences for a given cemetery site.

University Competition 2022

Furthermore, as part of a special art and photography competition university students from visual arts and photography departments in all seven participating project countries are invited to submit artwork inspired by Jewish cemeteries. The winning artworks will be featured on the website and in a traveling exhibition, accompanied by textual material developed using the Consortium’s database. To top it off, the artworks will also be presented at our final conference.


Call for entries as well as the guidelines for the 2022 competitions will be published soon.
