Sponsor of the Most Outstanding Digital Preservation Initiative in Commerce, Industry and the Third sector award, Dave Tarrant of the
Open Data Institute
said, ‘We are delighted to support an award which acknowledges and recognises the great efforts undertaken within organisations across the world who do not have collection and preservation as their core
mandate. Each of finalists demonstrates the potential for opportunities created by data and the importance of digital preservation activities in their own contexts.’
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.
Member votes will open on Monday 10th September
Finalists will then wait until the prestigious Digital Preservation Awards ceremony at the Amsterdam Museum where winners will be announced in front of their own digital preservation community, friends, family and peers from leading organisations on World Digital
