Carl Fleischhauer Award

The Carl Fleischhauer Award was created in recognition of Carl Fleischhauer's legacy of patience, persistence, and commitment to guiding the development and deployment of IASA preservation standards and best practices. The Award is given to individuals who embody the qualities of Fleischhauer's legacy by demonstrating a thoughtful and intentional commitment to advancing the dialogue of audio-visual preservation.

Applicants should understand the need for multi-disciplinary expertise in sound and audiovisual archives and be committed to learning and contributing to the essential work in our relevant fields. Nominations are welcomed from anyone, regardless of age, race, colour, gender identity, national origin, religion. The Award consists of a five-year IASA membership to support the learning, engagement, and professional development of the recipient. One Award is given annually.

Funding for this award is generously provided by George Blood Audio/Video/Film/Data.
