My First piqlFilm
After you register, you can immediately start uploading your data to your first piqlFilm. You can upload unlimited data in AWA on multiple piqlFilms. Each film has a capacity of 120 GB. Everything you upload will be stored on our secure cloud until you submit and pay for the deposit. Optionally you can also store your data online.Get started
Store your data
You can upload any file format you would like. By default, your data is written in digital format (QR-codes) keeping the authenticity and integrity of your files. However, you can choose to write your data in visual format, creating a black and white image representation of your file. Visuals can be read by only using a magnifying glass.
Retrieve your data
When you request your data back, the correct piqlFilm is retrieved from the vault and placed on the piqlReader. It will read the requested data back from the piqlFilm and make the files available to you in the online portal.Read more about Technology on Piql's website
To visit Svalbard is on many people's bucket list, and we recommend everyone who stores their precious memories in AWA to participate in a deposit ceremony. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or special wishes for your visit.
Do you have memories and information that is a contribution to «World Memory»? Then we can offer a
public deposit ceremony in AWA, by invitation only.
There will be an intimate ceremony with presentations of all deposits, before walking through the mine to deposit the world memories in the vault. We also have joint social activities and a celebratory Arctic dinner.
You will receive a certificate of your deposit.
Would you like to store your personal or business memories and values for the future? We can arrange a
private deposit ceremony for you on request. Let your employees, business associates, friends or family
join the adventure.

We know that Svalbard is a long way to travel for many. Therefore, we offer an Online Ceremony, where
you can participate from home. Gather up with your colleagues, friends, and family to watch our
livestream event from the mine and vault, and see your values be safely stored in AWA. You will get a
nice video afterwards to use for promoting your deposit.
This is always arranged for the Public Ceremonies and can also be arranged for a Privat Ceremony.
