Announcing DH Awards 2012
Digital Humanities Awards are a new set of annual awards given in recognition of talent and expertise in the digital humanities community and are nominated and voted for entirely by the public. These awards are intended to help put interesting DH resources in the spotlight and engage DH users (and general public) in the work of the community. Awards are not specific to geography, language, conference, organization or field of humanities that they benefit. There is no financial prize associated with these community awards.
The categories for DH Awards 2012 are:
- Best DH tool or suite of tools: Nominations for this category should be for a tool or suite of tools specifically created for and used by members of the DH community
