DigiPal Nominated for DH2014 Awards
We were very happy to discover that DigiPal has been nominated for a DH Award in the category of 'Best Digital Humanities Tool or Suite of Tools'. The first DH Awards were given for projects launched in 2012 and are described by the committee as follows:
Digital Humanities Awards are a set of annual awards where the public is able to nominate resources for the recognition of talent and expertise in the digital humanities community. The resources are nominated and voted for entirely by the public. The weeding out by the nominations committee is solely based on the criteria of “Is it DH?”, “Is it in the right category?”, and “Was it launched/published/majorly updated in that year?”. These awards are intended as an awareness raising activity, to help put interesting DH resources in the spotlight and engage DH users (and general public) in the work of the community. Awards are not specific to geography, language, conference, organization or field of humanities that they benefit. Any suitable resource in any language or writing system may be nominated in any category. DH Awards actively encourages representation from more minority languages, cultures, and areas of DH. All nominated resources are worth investigating to see the range of DH work out there.
There are some very intersting projects in the list of nominations for this year (available also in French, Japanese, and Spanish), so do go and have a look at the examples of what people have been up to in the field.
Voting is open to everyone, too, with a deadline of 28 February 2015, so be sure to go and vote!Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
