First edition winners  (Arquivo.pt Award 2018)

The first edition, in 2018, awarded 3 proposals. The 1st prize went to the team led by Ricardo Campos, INESC TEC researcher and professor at the Polytechnic Institute of Tomar (IPT) with the project Conta-me Histórias, a platform which automatically generates temporal narratives from online news about topics submitted by its users.
