Digital Preservation Challenge
DigitalPreservationEurope has announced the first international Digital Preservation Challenge. "The challenge invites participants to overcome the barriers hindering access to six digital objects. Each object is accompanied by a highly abstracted scenario based on real-life situations. These scenarios are intended to make the challenge more accessible to participants from all backgrounds while not trivialising the serious nature of the digital preservation challenges facing society. Winners will be announced on 18 September 2007 at the European Conference on Research and Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries Conference Dinner. The winning entry will receive a cheque for 3000 Euros"
