The FIAT/IFTA Archive Achievement Awards are the annual appointment par excellence since 1994 for programs, projects or other initiatives that have improved significantly the ways in which the archives are preserved, managed and used. Any initiative that brings the professional preservation and management of audiovisual archives to a higher level, any project that valorizes the use of archive in an outstanding way, is eligible to enter. Members of FIAT/IFTA can nominate their own organization, or they can nominate a person or organization with whom they have collaborated to bring the project to a successful end.
Also this year we have received plenty of highly qualitative nominations in the three categories:
- Excellence in Media Management
- Excellence in Media Preservation
- Excellence in Archival Use and Valorization
The Awards Juries have chosen the shortlisted candidates in every category. Once again, these shortlists mirror the vitality and creativity of the audiovisual archiving profession worldwide.
Today we can announce the shortlisted candidates for the three categories on the Awards 2020 pages.
