On February 23, 2018 Arquivo.pt launched a new version called Zeus.
This new version includes a new programming interface (Arquivo.pt API) and improvements in the mobile interfaces.
The new application programming interface, called Arquivo.pt API, allows you to search and access information preserved automatically. The purpose of this new API was to aggregate functions and information that were provided through the various APIs developed previously. The search can be done by URL or by terms, and a JSON object with the response items is returned.
This new API can be useful to compete for the Arquivo.pt Prizes.
Applications for the Arquivo.pt Prizes 2018 are open until May 4.
The 1st prize is 10 000 EURO, individual or group applications can be submitted about any theme. The only requirement is to use Arquivo.pt as the main source of information.
To apply, you will need to submit a text and a short video describing the work done. The use of the Portuguese language is mandatory.
