FIAT/IFTA Archive Achievement Awards 2021
The FIAT/IFTA Archive Achievement Awards are designed to honor outstanding archival initiatives and projects 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 organisation, or they can nominate a person or organisation with whom they have collaborated to bring the project to a successful end.
The FIAT/IFTA Archive Achievement Awards winners are traditionally announced during the Awards Show, a part of the Gala Dinner at the FIAT/IFTA World Conference. Since the 2021 FIAT/IFTA World Conference will take place online, also the Awards Show will be a virtual one. The deadline to submit your proposal is 22 July 2021.
For the 2021 edition, the juries have decided to deduplicate the ‘Excellence in Archival Use and Valorisation’ into two new categories, ‘Excellence in Unlocking the Value and Potential of Archives’ and ‘Excellence in Archive Production’, so that both new and traditional media expressions have the opportunity to be rewarded.
