Call for Submissions: C. Herbert Finch Online Publication Award

The Finch Award honors online publications, including virtual exhibitions, web sites and web pages devoted to the promotion and use of archival materials, created by individuals or institutions in the MARAC region: the District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

Call for Submissions
The Finding Aids Award Committee will accept submissions or nominations for the C. Herbert Finch Online Publication Award. To be eligible for the award, an online publication must have a stable internet address and must have been published between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017.

The committee encourages the submission of entries that use a variety of media. Submissions are judged on content, navigability, usability, functionality, and site design. One award will be given with a maximum value of $250.00. The 2017 award will be announced at the Business Meeting of the MARAC Fall 2017 conference in Buffalo, New York.

Please note: An online publication that is primarily a finding aid is not eligible for the Finch Award, but may be nominated for the Finding Aids Award. Stay tuned for the call for submissions later this year.

Submission Deadline 
Entries must be received by July 31, 2017. Please e-mail URLs for each submission with a letter of nomination to the Senior Co-Chair of the Finding Aids Award Committee:
