Let’s face it: last week’s GIF Free For All awards were a hot bed of incest, corruption and petty politics. It’s time to set the record straight. The real GIF Awards need to go to Wallpapers. Why? Because these are gifs that can be tiled, and we all know bigger is better.

Wallpapers is a collaborative project founded in 2011 by artists Sara Ludy, Nicolas Sassoon and Sylvain Sailly. Now in its second iteration, Wallpapers has been shown at 319 Scholes in New York (curated by Lindsay Howard), Western Front in Vancouver (curated by Sarah Todd), and PAMI Festival in London (curated by Bubblebyte.org). This latest iteration (the second), will show at the New Forms Festival 12 in Vancouver (curated by Malcolm Levy). Participants include Laura Brothers, Rollin Leonard, Sara Ludy, Lorna Mills, Brenna Murphy, Sylvain Sailly, Nicolas Sassoon, Rick Silva, Krist Wood.

And now to the burning question: Who has made the best GIF? I announce a tie between Sylvain Sailly, Rick Silva and Laura Brothers! These GIFs couldn’t look more different from each other, but they both possess the same quality: Graphic appeal. As a viewer, you want to see the loop completed. There may be no better marker of a good GIF.
