scientists Stulik and Kaplan
 

In September, senior scientist Dusan Stulik and research lab associate Art Kaplan were awarded the Royal Photographic Society's 2011 Colin Ford Award in a ceremony held in London. The award is given annually to honor individuals who have made a significant contribution to photographic curatorship. Stulik is the project leader and Kaplan a team member of the GCI's Research on the Conservation of Photographs project, which has undertaken groundbreaking work to advance techniques for identifying important variations in photographic processes.

Instituted in 2003, this award is named for Colin Ford, the first director of the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford, UK (now the National Media Museum).
