    I’m writing to call your attention to the 2018 DH Awards. As described on the project website:

    Digital Humanities Awards are a set of annual awards where the public is able to nominate resources for the recognition of talent and expertise in the digital humanities community. The resources are nominated and voted for entirely by the public. The weeding out by the nominations committee is solely based on the criteria of “Is it DH?”, “Is it in the right category?”, and “Was it launched/published/majorly updated in that year?”. These awards are intended as an awareness raising activity, 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. Any suitable resource in any language or writing system may be nominated in any category. DH Awards actively encourages representation from more minority languages, cultures, and areas of DH. All nominated resources are worth investigating to see the range of DH work out there.

    There is no financial prize associated with these community awards.

    The nominations procedure is overseen by an international nominations committee who will decide on final candidates for each category based on whether they meet the above criteria.

    Manifold ( http://manifoldapp.org ), a GC Digital Initiatives project (in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Press), is nominated in the “Best Tool or Suite of Tools” category; please check it and the other nominees out and vote for your picks!

    Hi All,

    The vote for the 2018 DH Awards is very close, with the two leaders of the “Best Tool or Suite of Tools” separated by only a small percentage of votes ( https://twitter.com/dhawards/status/1100385495450820608 ). If you haven’t already done so, please check out the slate of nominees and consider casting a vote for Manifold if you are so inclined!!
