Awards Ceremony in Amsterdam

This year the exciting process will culminate in a spectacular awards ceremony at the Amsterdam Museum in Amsterdam, as part of an International Conference hosted by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network and the Amsterdam Museum on World Digital Preservation Day (previously International Digital Preservation Day) on Thursday 29th November 2018.

This is the first time the awards ceremony is held outside of Britain. The Digital Heritage Network (and previously the NCDD) has been actively cooperating with the Digital Preservation Coalition, initiator of the event, for years and have also signed a friendship agreement earlier this year. Furthermore, the Amsterdam Museum together with the Dutch Institute for Sound and Vision, Waag Society and the University of Amsterdam won a Digital Preservation Award at the 2016 edition.
