About the Antonio Zampolli Prize

The Antonio Zampolli Prize is an award of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO). It is named in honour of the late Professor Antonio Zampolli (1937-2003), who was one of the founding members of the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC) in 1973, and ALLC President 1983-2003.

He was a major figure in the development of literary and linguistic computing from the 1960s, and an enthusiastic supporter of the joint international conferences of ALLC and the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH), which were initiated in 1989. He was also a prime mover in the Text Encoding Initiative, both in the initial 11-year project, and in the establishment of the TEI Consortium.

The Zampolli award is given to recognise a single outstanding output in the digital humanities by any scholar or scholars at any stage in their career. The output must involve the innovative use of information and communications technologies and may take the form of published research and/or the development of research-related tools or resources.

The award will be made on the basis of the output’s importance as a contribution to the digital humanities, taking into account the significance both of its use of information and communication technologies and of its actual or potential contribution to the advancement of humanities research. The award will be made every three years, alternating with other ADHO triennial awards, such as the Busa award. For the Zampolli award the output recognized in the award will normally have been published or otherwise made publicly available in the 7 years preceding the year of the award.

Key Dates and Order of Program

Deadline for application is September 1, 2021.
