Dear Michelle, dear community,
I just want to express my delight and my excitement for this achievement. I was sitting close to Michael Sperberg-McQueen when this was announced and we both visibly gasped for the joy and the emotion of the moment. Michael had an interesting thought which was not possible to enact in Krakow, but could be a good idea in Montreal: to ask all people in the audience that have ever been part of the TEI Council/Board, have ever submitted a request in source forge/github, that has ever taken part in the life of the SIGs to stand up: looking around me last week I could say that we would have *a lot* of people standing up indeed, which proved how the TEI is a community and it can only exist as a community. And I’m very proud of being part of such a community!
All the best

> The TEI Consortium (TEI-C) and by extension the TEI Community as a whole have been named the recipient of the Antonio Zampolli Prize to be awarded at the Digital Humanities 2017 conference (http://dh2017.adho.org) in Montréal, Canada. Nancy Ide, Michael Sperberg-McQueen, and Lou Burnard will accept the prize on behalf of the TEI-C and TEI Community.
> The Antonio Zampolli Prize is an award of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO). It is named in honor of the late Professor Antonio Zampolli (1937-2003), who was one of the founding members of the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing in 1973. Most befitting, Zampolli was a champion for the Text Encoding Initiative, from the early days through the inception of the TEI Consortium.
> This will be the third Antonio Zampolli Prize awarded by ADHO and the first granted to a community, which is a testament to the truly collaborative nature of the TEI and the broad scholarly impact made by all of us as contributors to the standard, participants of special interest groups, speakers at our annual conference, and teachers of text encoding.
> According to Michael Sperberg-McQueen’s “In Memoriam” to Zampolli, Antonio had a zest for life, and can be credited for kick-starting the TEI initiative in Pisa soon after the well-known Poughkeepsie Planning Conference of November 1987 (https://listserv.brown.edu/archives/cgi-bin/wa?A2=TEI-L;acc9b339.0308). From Michael’s post we can also tell that Zampolli had a reputation for adventurous driving. Zampolli embodied all the qualities — dedication, experimentation, and a little bit of crazy — that make the TEI the vibrant community that it is today. The Antonio Zampolli Prize is indeed an honor!
