Digital Heritage Award 2011 Nominees
An international jury, consisting of Josh Greenberg, Susan Hazan, Johan Oomen, Vincent Puig and Mia Ridge have selected the five final of a longer list of crowdsourcing projects. As you can read in the jury statements (provided with each of the final five projects) each of these final projects is well worth winning the award!
The 5 nominated crowdsourcing projects are (in alphabetical order, with the institution that will present the project at DISH2011):
· Digitalkoot (National Library of Finland)
· Old Weather (National Maritime Museum of the UK)
· Remember Me (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum)
· Transcribe Bentham (University College London)
· Trove (National Library of Australia)
It is now up to you, the participants of the conference, to vote for your favorite project. Remember that the award is not meant as a quality assessment of the project, but says something about the preferences of fellow professionals. Which idea leads to new horizons? Which project inspires the most?

How to vote?
Each project will shortly be presented during the plenary program of the first day of the conference. Each project will have a table at the information market where you can talk to the representatives of the project, try the tools yourself or get a closer look at project online. You will find three stickers in your conference bag, which you can use to vote on your favorite project(s). Until the end of lunchtime you should have contributed your stickers at the project table! The award will be presented at 17:15 pm at the end of day 1 (December 7).
So, have you chosen your favorite project yet?
