Call for Nominations for Antonio Zampolli Prize

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) Standing Committee on Awards is seeking nominations for the 2020 Antonio Zampolli Prize. The Zampolli Prize recognizes a single output in the field of Digital Humanities by any scholar or scholars at any stage of their careers.

As the prize is awarded to the project as a whole, the recipients can be a single individual or a collaborative group of scholars, researchers and/or practitioners. The output recognized can take any form: published research, developed resources or tool(s) for research.
