First Digital Preservation Challenge

The DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE) has just announced its first international Digital Preservation Challenge:
The challenge invites participants to overcome the barriers hindering access to six digital objects. Each object is accompanied by a highly abstracted scenario based on real-life situations. These scenarios are intended to make the challenge more accessible to participants from all backgrounds while not trivialising the serious nature of the digital preservation challenges facing society.
The competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students in any major, and the winner will be announced in September at ECDL.
