Last updated on December 13th, 2021 at 12:03 pm

The winners of the Arquivo.pt Award 2021 were the guests of the Arquivo.pt online session on World Digital Preservation Day 2021.

As in previous years, Arquivo.pt joined this international initiative by holding an open session, where useful knowledge will be shared with the community.

Paulo Martins, Leandro Costa and Jose Carlos Ramalho, who guided this work, spoke about the “Major Minors” project and how they used the contents preserved by Arquivo.pt.

The “Major Minors” project is an ontology of press clippings from Portuguese newspapers with reference to social minorities.  It aims to map and study the representation of minorities in the Portuguese journalistic context over the first two decades of the 21st century.
