KATHRYN A. MARTIN LIBRARY

GIFable UMD Contest Winners

The winners of the first-ever Kathryn A. Martin Library GIFable UMD contest have been announced!

UMD students were invited to submit GIFs that captured their UMD story. For the uninitiated, GIF stands for “graphics interchange format”—you know, those cute looping videos or animated photos that are popularly shared on social media.

Here are the winners, selected by four judges, including two librarians, one art faculty member, and a library student employee.


Category Winners

Library Scenes - Winner Cora Crocker



UMD Life - Winner Lizzie Easter


Time Capsule - Winner Cora Crocker


Wild Card - Winner Tony Reamer



Congratulations! Each winner will receive a $100 gift card to use at UMD Stores.

To view all of the entries, check out the Kathryn A. Martin Library GIPHY channel.

Contest rules were posted on the library’s website. Watch for the GIFable UMD contest next year!
