Call for Nominations: 2022 Antonio Zampolli Prize

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) Awards Committee is seeking nominations for the 2022 Antonio Zampolli Prize.

The Zampolli Prize is a triennial award that recognizes a single output in the field of Digital Humanities by any scholar or scholars at any stage of their career(s). As such, it offers a unique opportunity to reward individual projects that either have been formative or had a decisive impact on the field as a whole. Because the prize is awarded to the overall project, 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, an established initiative, and/or center or tool(s) for research, for example. To be eligible for the prize, the nominated project must involve the innovative scholarly use of information and communications technologies.

We urge you, as members of the field, to take this opportunity to offer recommendations for outstanding work that you feel deserves recognition. Nominations will be accepted until 23:59 UTC on 01 September 2021. A winner will be announced during the winter of 2021-2022 and the prize will be awarded at the 2022 DH conference.

Nominations should consist of a document (1500-2000 words) describing the work to be nominated and the individual(s) involved, paying special attention to the relevance and importance of this work to the field as a whole. Please include a brief description of the work, a discussion of its innovative use of information technology and, particularly, the importance of this project to the Digital Humanities. Self-nominations will not be accepted. Please address nominations to the ADHO Awards Committee and send electronic copies to awards [at] adho [dot] org.

Note: Any previous nominations should be resubmitted.
