Deadline Extended: Second international Digital Preservation Challenge

This is a follow-up to the original post.

Second international Digital Preservation Challenge deadline extended to 31 July 2008

As the original deadline for the Second Digital Preservation Challenge coincides with the exam period for many students across Europe DigitalPreservationEurope has decided to extend the deadline for the DPE challenge until 31 July 2008.

Due to the challenging nature of this competition it was deemed appropriate to allow students the opportunity to focus on their entries over the summer months when they would not have exams to prepare for.

The Digital Preservation Challenge invites participants to overcome the barriers hindering access to five digital objects. Each set of objects is accompanied by a scenario based on a real-life digital preservation situation. There are no wrong solutions, only interesting ones, we want to hear your ideas!

Important dates
Opening of the Challenge: 15 January 2008 Deadline for submissions: 31 July 2008 at 4pm GMT Announcement of winners: ECDL 17 September 2008, Aarhus, Denmark

First Prize 3000 Euros
