Australian born, New York-based Justin Maller has a new project, Run Your Jewels, which has brought back online collaboration in full force. The website features a new competition every two weeks. In the first week, a new contributor, handpicked by Maller, uploads a high resolution image that the public has until the end of week to finish remixing. In the second week, voting takes place on the remixed images by the creator of the source image, Maller, and the public. The project has provided a unique opportunity for artists to collaborate with and even win prizes from household names like Joshua Davis and Chuck Anderson.
