The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) has recently announced the finalists for the 2024 Digital Preservation Awards. We are very pleased to announce that the Working Group team behind the revision and reimagining of the 2021 NDSA Staffing Survey are finalists for the International Council on Archives Award for Collaboration & Cooperation. You can read our full award application summary here.

The redesign of the 2021 NDSA Staffing Survey was a significant international effort to build and refine one of the only longitudinal open datasets of its kind by reconfiguring the survey from an organizational focus (as seen in the 2012 and 2017 versions), to allow for individual participation. This shift allowed for a more detailed picture of the current state of digital preservation staffing to emerge from the data, and was the product of intensive collaboration between the members of the Working Group, as well as the digital preservation community.

DPC members will be selecting their first and second choices for each category as well as providing feedback on the finalists to the judges before winners are selected. Voting opens on this Friday, June 14 and closes on Friday, July 12, 2024. (If you are a DPC member, we would really appreciate your vote!)

Winners will be announced at iPres 2024 in Ghent, Belgium on Monday, September 16.
