About the seminar

The winner of this prestigious Award will be announced, and a presentation about the winning project will take place, on Wednesday 22nd May 2024 at The National Museum of Computing (TNMoC).

The international Tony Sale Award was established by the Computer Conservation Society (CCS) in 2012 in memory of the late Tony Sale. This award recognises a singular achievement in the area of computer conservation and restoration by a person or group, and gives public recognition to such work worldwide. The emphasis is on highlighting a significant practical project, which may involve hardware and/or software.

The award, normally made every two years, was paused during the pandemic. The Computer Conservation Society (CCS) is delighted to resume the award for 2024. Engagement with visitors and users through working machines is a signature feature of Tony Sale’s legacy. With its emphasis on live interaction with users, TNMoC, located at Bletchley Park, is a natural home for the Tony Sale Award. This year, TNMoC will host the award ceremony as part of a collaborative effort with CCS.

An independent judging panel, convened by Professor Martin Campbell-Kelly, will evaluate entries and select the winner.
