Copi – a new service
At this year’s National Eisteddfod, visitors will be able to order DVD copies of competitions, ceremonies and concerts held in the Pavilion. This can be done through a brand new service, Copi.
This service will be offered by the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales, in partnership with the National Eisteddfod of Wales and BBC Wales.
Recently, the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales, which is located at the National Library of Wales, became home to this complete collection of Eisteddfod events – a collection which dates back to the Anglesey National Eisteddfod held in 1999.
As well as buying copies from this year’s Eisteddfod, it will also be possible to order copies of events held at any Eisteddfod from 1999. It will also be possible to contact the Screen and Sound Archive after the Eisteddfod to order.
Dafydd Pritchard, Manager of the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales said:
“It’s an honour to receive this collection into the Archive and to safeguard it for the future. We look forward to starting this new venture, and to providing Eisteddfod-goers with the service this year.”
Elfed Roberts, Chief Executive of the National Eisteddfod of Wales said:
“The Eisteddfod welcomes this partnership with the National Library and we look forward to a period of cooperation between the two organisations.”
The Archive will also be responsible for licensing material to production companies wishing to broadcast Eisteddfod clips. More information about the service, as well as fees can be found on the Screen and Sound website.
