The DPC celebrates those people and organisations that have made a significant contribution to ensuring that we can have long term access to digital data. The threats to the digital estate are distinctive therefore the tools and processes of traditional archiving and conservation are not sufficient to ensuring ongoing access.  Therefore in 2004 the DPC established and sponsored a prize under the Conservation Awards to mark an outstanding contributuion to this challenging and new field. Because the award is embedded within the Conservation Awards it is offered approximately every two years.

A carefully selected group of expert judges review a series of projects and services which have been completed since the close of the previous award and which have been proposed by the community.  They create a short list of nominees who are interviewed about their work and then select the project which they think deserves particular attention.  The winners are announced at a specially convened gala ceremony. The winners receive a trophy a certificate and a cash prize.
