DH Awards 2018 Results

The winners of the DH Awards 2018 are as follows. Once duplicates were removed, the ballots as cast by members of the public over two weeks voting for one or more of the categories chose the winners. 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. Winners may use the icons (if they want). Since this is a DH awareness activity, if lots of people saw your favoured resource, then we all win!

Best Exploration of DH Failure

  • Winner: Towards a Taxonomy of Failure 
  • Note: We did not receive enough nominations in this category for a truly meaningful vote. However, we posted the category with this single blog post (the transcript of a talk from 2018) as it is well worth all in the DH community reading. “May you learn from your failure and grant others the same.”
