Complete the the application form by 11:59 pm February 19, 2016.

A panel of experts will review submissions and two winners will be chosen by Friday, March 11, 2016. 

June 30, 2016
The project will be due at the end of June 2016.
Individuals or teams may submit proposals.

Recipients will receive:
  • A $2,000 stipend
  • An opportunity to meet and consult with NYPL curators and NYPL Labs staff
  • A work space in one of our research study rooms at NYPL's historic Stephen A. Schwarzman Building for the duration of the residency
  • Promotion of finished work by NYPL Labs
The NYPL is seeking submissions for projects that provide new ways of looking at or presenting public domain materials—or allow access to the information or beauty currently locked within the static images it has digitized. Submissions may include:
  • Mappings
  • Visualizations
  • Generative Art
  • Games
  • Bots
  • Interactives

Evaluation of your proposal:
  • Creativity and engagement: Is the project re-using NYPL public domain materials in an engaging way that we haven't seen before?
  • New perspective and usability: Will this project help users see the collections in new ways, by recontextualizing, remixing, or recombining the collection?
  • Feasibility: Is the project scaled and scoped so that it can be completed during the duration of the residency?
