Arquivo.pt prize is back in 2019!

Prémio Arquivo

In 2019 Arquivo.pt will again distinguish innovative proposals that use the web information of the past, giving a total of 15.000 € in prizes.

Three proposals were awarded in the 2018’s edition, for the use of the digital archive preserved in the Portuguese web archive, the Arquivo.pt Prize.

The call will have the same format as the previous edition and will be open to all interested parties, regardless of their area of studies or activity, with a total of € 15,000 in prizes.

The distinguished proposals, individual or in groups, will be those that make the best usage promotion of web information preserved in Arquivo.pt.

Applications may contain research projects that use the resources of Arquivo.pt or discover useful applications of the archive for the society.

The main winner of the first edition of this prize was the “Conta-me Histórias” (Tell Me Stories) project, led by the researcher of INESC TEC, Ricardo Campos.
The platform (www.contamehistorias.pt) offers a temporal narrative from the online news published on a particular topic.

For Ricardo Campos, winning the first edition of the Arquivo.pt Prize was “an important boost” for the project, adding that, thanks to this distinction, “other research work may take place”.

The competition rules will be published soon, and the applications will run from January to May 2019. For more information, visit: www.arquivo.pt/premios.
