Cartoon memes, boomerang cartoon memes and other cartoons can live on even as the world’s media has turned into a vast digital archive.
The Internet Archive, the nonprofit organization that manages the vast digital library of the original cartoons, is launching a contest to find the 10 greatest memes, animated cartoons and other content online.
It’s the first time a nonprofit organization has taken on such a monumental task.
It’s a challenge for the people who run the nonprofit and the Internet Archive to keep the content online, according to its website.
The winners will be announced during a special panel discussion at the organization’s headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif., in September, with a chance for participants to win an iPad Mini, a Kindle Fire tablet, an iPad mini with the Apple Pencil and more.
The winners will receive a trip to New York City to visit the Digital Public Library, an interactive library that houses the original work of the Library of Congress, the National Archives and the Smithsonian Institution.
This year’s contest was inspired by the success of a previous contest that included more than a thousand entries.
The organizers were inspired to create a contest after seeing how well the original creations from the Library Of Congress and the National Archive fared when they were preserved on the Web, said John Pfeifer, the chairman of the Internet Archives board.
“The idea for a contest arose from our realization that the Internet has become a huge, massive, digital archive,” he said.
“It was really just a question of, how do we make sure that all these iconic, iconic works that are out there that are part of the public domain still have a place to be in the world?”
The Internet Archives said the contest will be open to all, but it will include a stipulation that entrants must be at least 18 years old.
That means the winning entries will have to be kept on the Internet for at least two years, according the website.
“We will not be collecting images of the winning cartoon or animated content,” the website states.
“We will be collecting an archive of the content in the Internet archive that will not only have the original creator’s name, but will also include a link to his or her archive,” the site states.
The winner of the contest, selected by a panel of experts from across the nonprofit, will receive an iPad with the Pencil, a $500 Amazon gift card and a commemorative digital version of the award-winning animated cartoon, the site said.
The original work has been preserved on a massive network of libraries, archives and government agencies, with the work being catalogued by the National Library of Medicine.
But the content has been available for people to access since 1999, when the Internet launched.
The National Library Of Medicine says that it is one of the world, or at least the largest, collections of original cartoons and animated content.
That includes a library of about 1.5 million cartoons, cartoons and comic books, plus thousands of original animations, videos and books.
It says the archive is available for anyone to access.
The Library of the Congress said in a statement that the library is pleased to be able to bring the original content to the public.
“This collection represents one of our greatest resources, and one of its great assets, in helping to preserve and disseminate America’s history,” said L.L.C.A. Director of Digital Programs David J. Smith.
“Its inclusion in this new online library will help to enrich the lives of millions of Americans, and we look forward to hosting a live webcast with experts who will answer questions about the library’s work and its collections.”
The Internet has grown exponentially since the late 1980s, when it started as a bulletin board site.
Its popularity peaked during the dot-com bubble of the early 2000s, and it continues to grow.
