The search for the very best work in digital preservation across all sectors has begun again this year, with the launch of the 2020 Digital Preservation Awards!

The prestigious Digital Preservation Awards is the most prominent celebration of achievement for those people and organisations who have made significant and innovative contributions to maintaining our digital legacy.

This year the exciting process will culminate in a presentation 'with a difference' on World Digital Preservation<https://dpconline.org/events/world-digital-preservation-day> Day on Thursday 5th November 2020. More information about the presentation of awards will follow in due course.
