Best DH visualization or infographic: Infographic – the Humanities Matter

Best use of DH for fun: Serendip-o-matic
“Serendip-o-matic connects your sources to digital materials located in libraries, museums, and archives around the world. By first examining your research interests, and then identifying related content in locations such as the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), Europeana, and Flickr Commons, our serendipity engine helps you discover photographs, documents, maps and other primary sources.”

Best DH tool or suite of tools: Commons In A Box
“Commons In A Box (CBOX) is a free software project aimed at turning the infrastructure that successfully powers the CUNY Academic Commons into a free, distributable, easy-to-install package.” “CBOX takes the complexity out of creating a Commons site, helping organizations create a space where their members can discuss issues, collaborate on projects, and share their work.”

Best DH blog post, article, or short publication: “‘Psychopower’ of Cultural Diplomacy in the Information Age” by Natalia Grincheva
