Following last year’s pattern, I will devote a post to each of the categories in the coming weeks to highlight what the judges found so exemplary about all of these winners. I want to thank everyone who nominated a site. I know all of the judges found it exhilarating to see the good work being done out there, even if we were not able to reward all of it as we might have wanted to.

These awards would not be possible without the efforts of our distinguished colleagues who joined me in reviewing the nominations. This year’s judges were:

Geof Huth, New York State Archives
Jeanne Kramer-Smyth, iSchool, University of Maryland
Claude Zachary, University of Southern California
Tanya Zanish-Belcher, Iowa State University

Thanks, again to them for their service, and congratulations to the winners!

    I’m very glad Stadsarchief Amsterdam won this price. The website of the Archiefbank is an inspiring example to me.
