- Projects involving preservation, in any valid and reasonable fashion, such as providing a collection with proper climate control, moving a collection to facilities with proper storage conditions, re-sleeving a collection of discs, setting up a volunteer project to organize and inventory a stored collection, rescuing recordings from danger, copying recordings on endangered or unstable media, etc.;
- Projects promoting public access to recordings;
- Projects involving commercial as well as private, instantaneous recordings;
- Projects involving collections anywhere in the world (non-U.S. applicants are encouraged to apply).
