Card Meet the winners of the Arquivo.pt Award 2020

Last updated on August 14th, 2020 at 01:14 pm

The winners of the Arquivo.pt 2020 Award were announced by the Público newspaper, the official media partner of this year’s edition, which granted an honorable mention to the best work based on the contents of the newspaper. 29 candidate works were received.

The award ceremony will take place during Science 2020 – Meeting with Science and Technology, scheduled for November 2-4 at the Lisbon Congress Center.

1st place – “Desarquivo”

The winner of the 10,000 euros prize was the work “ Desarquivo ” developed by Miguel Ramalho.

“Desarquivo” is a website that enables searching for named entities (e.g. people, organizations and places) and identify relationships among them, based on news published in online newspapers along time.

The search results are presented in the form of a graph or network of relationships that enables a journalist, researcher or any common citizen to dynamically explore the relationships among historical information preserved from the Web by Arquivo.pt.

For example, a user can explore ideological proximity among political parties along time.

2nd place – “Arquivo.pt Extension”

The 2nd prize in the amount of 3,000 euros was awarded to the work “ Extension Arquivo.pt ”,  a browser extension developed by Rodrigo Marques and Hugo Silva.

This extension enables users to perform advanced searches on Arquivo.pt directly from the browser , without having to leave the page they are currently viewing.

The “Arquivo.pt Extension” is available for download in the Chrome Web Store.

3rd place – “Arquivo Económico .pt”

The 3rd place winner received a prize of 2,000 euros and was awarded to the work “Arquivo Económico .pt” by Nuno Bragança.

The “Arquivo Económico .pt” organizes and presents information preserved by Arquivo.pt about the prices of products since the time of the Portuguese coin escudo.

As a result, we have a website that enables searching the price of consumer goods by different categories, such as supermarket, transportation or others, on given dates.

For example, users can easily know how much a trip from Lisbon-Porto or a cell phone call costed in 1999.

Honorable Mention granted by Público newspaper

Jornal Público, official partner of the 3rd edition of the Arquivo.pt Prize, awarded its Honorable Mention to the work “Jornal do Passado”, developed by Bruno Galhardo.

“Jornal do Passado” is a game for all ages, developed for Android, in which the users test their knowledge about news or events by guessing the date in which they occurred.

As a result, we have an app that enables searching the historical information preserved by Arquivo.pt in a pedagogical and fun way.
