The Zampolli Prize is a awarded every three years by The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) in recognition of an outstanding singular achievement in the Digital Humanities. The Prize is named in honor of Antonio Zampolli, one of the founders of the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC) and its president when he tragically died in 2003. The first award was given to Chad Gaffield in 2011.
The next Zampolli Prize will be given at the DH conference in 2014. The Award Committee, made up of members of the constituent organizations of ADHO, now invites nominations. These may be made by anyone with an interest in humanities computing and neither nominee nor nominator need be a member of any of the ADHO constituent organizations.
The nomination should consist of the following information: a description of the nominee’s work and the reasons why this work is considered to be an outstanding contribution to the field of Digital Humanities. A list of bibliographic references to the nominee’s work is desirable. Nominators are welcome to resubmit updated versions of unsuccessful nominations submitted in previous years.
