Sponsor of the Award for Research and Innovation, Neil Chue Hong of the Software Sustainability Institute said: ‘I am so encouraged by the level of research, detail and innovation in these projects selected as finalists. They each have the potential to bring about significant change and benefit to the digital preservation community.’

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.
