Award Description:

This award is given for an exemplary project or publication by a Canadian
researcher, or a researcher at a Canadian institution, or a team based at
Canadian institution. It recognizes a major contribution to the field of
digital humanities, *broadly conceived*, by a Canadian researcher or team
of researchers, or a researcher or team based at a Canadian institution, in
the form of a recent scholarly publication or published software or tool

The scholarship may take the form of a traditional scholarly publication or
a significant piece of software development in the form of a prototype, a
tool, an application, web resource or web service, piece of digital
infrastructure or result of fabrication.

The publication or creation for which the award will be made may relate to
any area of the digital humanities, and should constitute a substantial
advance in the field, whether theoretical, critical, or applied, and may
take the form of print or online publications, a design portfolio,
prototypes, or a production system.

The award will be given for work that, in the opinion of the CSDH/SCHN
Award Committee, constitutes a landmark contribution to the field.

Digital Humanities Awards are a set of entirely open annual 
awards run as a DH awareness raising activity. The awards 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. Although the working language of DH Awards is English, 
nominations may be for any resource in any language. Awards are 
not specific to geography, language, conference, organization or 
field of humanities. There is no financial prize associated with 
these community awards. There were many nominations and the 
international nominations committee 
(http://dhawards.org/dhawards2015/committee/) reviewed each 
nomination. We’re sorry if your nomination was not included, or 
changed category, all decisions are final once voting opens. 
Please see http://dhawards.org/dhawards2016/faqs2016/ for this 
and other frequently asked questions.

Anyone is allowed to vote, yes anyone, but please only vote once.

Please cast vote by looking at the nominations and following the 
link to voting form at http://dhawards.org/dhawards2016/voting/
