This article introduces the New Media Writing Prize (NMWP) special collection ( created on behalf of the six UK Legal Deposit Libraries and hosted by the UK Web Archive. It is divided into two sections, presenting the perspectives of the archivists and the organizers of the prize respectively. The first section outlines the scope of the collection and how it fits within the wider collecting activities of the libraries. It explains the methodology and workflows behind building the collection, with a special focus on the quality assurance aspect of the process, and on what constitutes a ‘good copy’ in the context of complex digital narratives. Furthermore, it touches on the history of the collaborations between the British Library and digital writing communities, which resulted in numerous workshops, events, residencies and ultimately the creation of this collection. The second section presents the history of the Prize from the point of view of its organizers, highlighting its evolution through the years and plans for the future.
