Dear All,

The LinkedUp*Veni Competition <http://linkedup-challenge.org/#first>*, 
organised by the *LinkedUp Project <http://linkedup-project.eu>*, is the 
first in a series of three competitions on tools and demos that analyse 
or integrate open web data for educational purposes. The winners were 
announced 
<http://linkedup-project.eu/2013/09/17/veni-competition-winners/> at the 
Open Knowledge Conference (*OKCon <http://okcon.org>*), where the eight 
shortlisted submissions were presented during a *dedicated session 
<http://linkedup-project.eu/2013/09/02/linkedup-at-okcon/>*.**

We received 22 submissions from 12 different countries, which offered 
innovative ideas in areas from mobile education, knowledge sharing and 
museum visits, to politics and sustainable development. And the winners 
are:**


*Third Place: **We-Share 
<http://linkedup-challenge.org/veni.html#weshare>***- a social 
annotation application for educational ICT tools. We-Share can help 
educators to find tools to support teaching at all educational levels, 
and received high scores on educational innovation.


*Second Place:**Globe-Town 
<http://linkedup-challenge.org/veni.html#globetown>***- a ''fun to use' 
tool that lets users find out the most important trade partners, migrant 
populations and airline routes of their own countries. It also provides 
infographics on issues regarding society, environment and economy.


*First Place:**Polimedia 
<http://linkedup-challenge.org/veni.html#polimedia>**- *connects 
transcripts of the Dutch parliament with media coverage in newspapers 
and radio bulletins. Polimedia employs innovative information techniques 
and provides an attractive front-end that invites exploration and browsing.


In addition, the audience voted 
<http://linkedup-project.eu/2013/07/25/veni-competition-peoples-choice/>on 
the *People's Choice Award*, which was We-Share.

The remaining shortlisted entries are: **

  * *DataConf* <http://linkedup-challenge.org/veni.html#dataconf> - a
    mobile mashup that enriches conference publications.
  * *Knownodes* <http://linkedup-challenge.org/veni.html#knownodes>**-
    enables defining and exploring connections between web resources and
    ideas
  * *Mismuseos* <http://linkedup-challenge.org/veni.html#mismuseos> -
    browse and explore the backgrounds and relations between objects
    from multiple Spanish museums.
  * *ReCredible* <http://linkedup-challenge.org/veni.html#rethink>**- a
    browsable topic map with wikipedia-like content next to it.
  * *YourHistory* <http://linkedup-challenge.org/veni.html#yourhistory>
    - a Facebook app that shows historic events that are related to your
    own life.



Our *evaluation panel 
<http://linkedup-challenge.org/#reviewpanel>*considered many aspects of 
the entries including innovation, attractiveness and usefulness. They 
also looked at the relevance for education, the usability and 
performance of the tools, the data the entry uses or provides, and the 
way privacy and other legal aspects are dealt with. The quality of 
submissions was very high and there were some very impressive entries 
that unfortunately didnít make the top eight.**


Building upon the success of the Veni Competition, the *LinkedUp project 
<http://linkedup-project.eu/>*will launch the next competition, Vidi, in 
November. The *Vidi Competition <http://linkedup-challenge.org/>*will 
involve more data, will be more challenging, will offer more support and 
more prizes.


Thanks


Marieke
