Breadcrumbs Prize 2019 announced winners of the 2nd edition


The winners of the 2019 award are already known. The announcement was made yesterday, during the first day of the Science Meeting 2019, at the Lisbon Congress Center, and the awards for the three winners were delivered by the Prime Minister, António Costa.

The first place winner was the project. This is a mobile application that simulates the Portuguese Parliament, authored by Nuno Moniz, Arian Pasquali and Tomás Amaro.

APP users are invited to play the role of a member of parliament and discover the party they most identify with, through the simulation of already archived plenary votes.

In second place was the project, an online tool that allows revealing changes that may have been made to news stories after they were first published. The authors of this work are Flávio Martins and André Mourão.

The work "Public Discourses on Violence in Private", by Zélia de Macedo Teixeira, was awarded third place. The project collected and analyzed 217 news items available at, from three main national daily newspapers, on the topic of domestic violence.
