App, games, films… today museums’ multimedia projects can have many forms. Nevertheless, short videos appear the most common option: conceived as visual exhibit or promotional content, short videos are a sort of common denominator, in the real life of contemporary museums.
Museums in Short is an European contest and an archive for short videos realized by/for/with museums.
Launched in 2012, Museums in Short awards are presented to institutions, authors or producers who use videos to enhance museum communication and engage audiences. Projects may include documentaries, animations, trailers and visual installations.
In 2018 edition there are three Museums in Short award categories:
Promotional: trailers communicating museums, their exhibitions or events;
Exhibits: short video realized for permanent or temporary exhibition.
Storytelling: short narratives in video format. This can include fictional documentaries,interviews, motion graphics, animations and more.
Winning projects for each category are chosen by an international group of museum and video professionals. Online users can express their preference through the online voting platform available on the website www.museumsinshort.eu.
