The Cross-Pollinator Awards & Upcoming Opportunities

Since 2015 (and initially with support from the Kress Foundation), the GLAM Cross-Pollinator Registration Awards have aimed to foster communication and conversation among the GLAM communities.  Each year, a member from each of our partner organizations receives free registration to attend the DLF Forum and, in exchange, a DLF member affiliate attends each partner conference. Learn more about those who attended the 2018 DLF Forum in Las Vegas, Nevada.

DLF would like to thank our partners at the Visual Resources Association, the Museum Computer Network and the American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works for participating in this program.

Opportunities for partner affiliates wishing to attend the 2019 DLF Forum will be available in late spring 2019, and awards to support DLF community members’ attendance of partner conferences will follow. Check the Cross-Pollinator Awards homepage for the latest.
