Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the ADHO Awards Committee, the ADHO secretariat is forwarding the
following announcement:

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) Standing Committee on

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

As such, it offers a unique opportunity to reward individual projects that have
been either formative or had a decisive impact on the field as a whole. 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. To be eligible for the prize, the
nominated project must involve in the innovative use of information and
communications technologies. A triennial prize of the ADHO, the Zampolli prize
winner is intended to be announced at the 2019 ADHO conference in Utrecht, and
the prize will be awarded at the 2020 conference in Ottawa. We urge you, as
members of the field to take this opportunity to offer recommendations for
outstanding work that you feel deserves recognition.

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. Special consideration will be given to nominations that include
statements from multiple people speaking to the relevance of the work. Please
address nominations to the Standing Committee on and send electronic copies to
