‘Best Scene in Town @ PICNIC ’12’ took place over summer 2012. Best Scene in Town is a mobile design challenge in which student teams from universities from all over the world compete to create the ultimate mobile experience for the PICNIC festival crowd. At this year’s challenge, universities battled against each other to come up with a creative mobile concept using the 7scenes platform. They either worked on a totally new concept or submitted a local project already developed at their university. In this last occasion, the challenge was to develop a strategy for adjusting this local concept so it can be produced in Amsterdam.

7scenes is a mobile storytelling platform that enables organizations in education, cultural tourism and events to create and publish Scenes – location-based tours and games for smartphones. We believe that making engaging mobile experiences should be easy and fun. That’s why we provide you with a complete toolkit to help you link your media to places. With our online authoring tools it becomes very easy to connect your story to the city. Simply drag and drop places on a digital map and link media like video, audio, photos, text, tasks, rewards or opinion polls to them.
Based in Amsterdam, with an extended team in Belarus, we work with many organizations in the cultural tourism, heritage, education and events sectors, both in the Netherlands and internationally.
