Teams will work together to transcribe a source from Europeana 1914-1918, and at the end, present their results to an international jury. Prizes will be awarded for winners in the categories of transcription quantity, quality and presentation.

The event will kick off on Monday 7 November 2016, and run throughout the course of the AGM.
