Around 2011, the animated gif, that old-guard Internet file format, rose to new glory as a way of creating images with video effect. Cinemagraphs, a term coined by U.S. photographers Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck, have gone on to virtually rule the roost in much of web culture.

Since gifs do in fact move, they can be classified as moving images, earning themselves a chance to shine at Directors Lounge.

You can upload your audience-thirsty animated gifs directly here. We’ll post all entries as they fly in… with the best later receiving a dedicated presentation during DLX.

• Animated gifs can be sent by e-mail or by using this page. (You´ll need to be on tumblr.) Make sure it is no larger than 1MB and no more than 500 pixels wide.
