Digital Humanities Award Winners for 2016

The nominees for the Digital Humanities Awards for 2016 were announced, and votes were tallied through Saturday 25 February 2017.

And the winners have been announced. Projects dealing with the ancient world won every category except Best DH Blog Post or Series of Posts (which AWOL won last year):

DH Awards 2016 Results
The winners of the DH Awards 2016 are as follows. Once ‘accidental’ (and not so accidental) duplicates of the 1726 ballots were removed there were 1652  ballots cast by members of the public over two weeks voting for one or more of the categories. Sorry if your favoured resource did not win — open public votes are popularity contests not necessarily a measure of worth and some of the resources campaigned more successfully than the others. Since this is a DH awareness activity, if lots of people saw your favoured resource, then we all win.

Best DH Tool or Suite of Tools
