The next set finalists for the prestigious Digital Preservation Awards 2022 are revealed today, with three exceptional initiatives which demonstrate digital preservation excellence in agencies that would not traditionally consider themselves to be ‘memory institutions.’

Finalists for The Research Data Alliance (RDA) Award for the Most Outstanding Digital Preservation Initiative in Commerce, Industry and the Third sector are (in no particular order):

  • National Centre for Truth & Reconciliation

  • Long-term preservation of Digital Health Records

  • Mahou-San Miguel: Preserving the Legacy of the Leading Spanish Brewery Company

Hilary Hanahoe, Director of the RDA said: ‘These finalists represent a diverse range of contexts in which outstanding digital preservation work is being conducted, where collection and preservation are not their core mandate. I’m delighted that the Research Data Alliance can help celebrate, highlight and commend their work.’

Before the judges decide on the winners, members of the Digital Preservation Coalition will be invited to cast their vote on each category once all the finalists have been announced. Members will be asked to select their first and second choices for each category and are asked to provide feedback to the finalists. Each Full Member, Associate and Allied Organisation of the DPC may submit one vote.

Voting will open on Friday 10th June.

Following an interview with the Judges, winners will be revealed at the presentation ceremony at the iPres 2022 conference in Glasgow, on Monday 12th September alongside the digital preservation community, friends, family and peers from leading organisations.

The Digital Preservation Awards are a world-wide celebration of significant and state-of-the-art contributions to securing our digital legacy and just one of the ways the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) helps to raise awareness of the strategic, cultural, and technological issues which make up the digital preservation challenge.  

The Digital Preservation Awards are made possible by the expertise and support provided by our international panel of Judges, and funding from our sponsors.
