Apologies for the BCC.

It’s that time of year again and we are proud to announce the annual BL Labs Competition and BL Labs Awards, celebrating the use of the British Library’s digital collections, are open for 2016!

The BL Labs Competition (http://labs.bl.uk/British+Library+Labs+Competition+2016), which closes on 11 April 2016, is looking for innovative project ideas which use our digital collections in new and exciting ways. Two winners will be selected who will get the opportunity to work on their projects in residence with BL Labs at the British Library for 6 months,  where they will receive the necessary support to make their ideas happen. The Competition winner and runner up will receive £3000 and £1000 respectively.

The BL Labs Awards (http://labs.bl.uk/British+Library+Labs+Awards+2016), which closes on 5 September 2016, recognises outstanding and innovative work carried out using our digital content in four key areas: Research, Commercial, Artistic and Teaching / Learning. A prize of £500 for the winner and £100 for the runner up  will be awarded in each category.

The winners, runners up and other entrants’ work will be showcased and the prizes given at the annual BL Labs Symposium on the 7 November at the British Library, St Pancras, London.

More information about the Competition and Awards is available via the Digital Scholarship blog:
