Dear colleagues, dear friends,
UNESCO is inviting nominations for the 7th edition of the UNESCO/Jikji Memory of the World Prize.
The Prize was created to commemorate the inscription of the Buljo jikji simche yojeol – the oldest known book of moveable metal print in the world – on the Memory of the World International Register. As such, it has become an important symbol of the Memory of the World Programme’s efforts to support the preservation and accessibility of documentary heritage as a common heritage of humanity.
UNESCO Member States, in consultation with their National Commissions, as well as international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) maintaining official relations with UNESCO and whose work is in the field of preservation and conservation of documentary heritage are thus encouraged to submit their nominations no later than 30 March 2018.
For more information on how to submit a nomination, please consult: https://en.unesco.org/news/unescojikji-memory-world-prize-call-nominations
Please share the announcement as widely as possible with your partners and potential nominators.
