Results of the “Conta-me o 25 de Abril” national contest released

Within the scope of the «Conta-me o 25 de Abril» (Tell me the 25th of April) national contest, the bYou project – Study on children and young peoples’s experiences and expressions of the media – and MILObs Observatory received 129 sound and video productions from various geographical areas of Portugal. The number reveals the acceptance of the initiative.

It was a challenging task for the contest panel to evaluate and select the winners. When analyzing the works, the pannel also came across some copyright problems that made the task even more difficult.

The bYou project would like to thank all the participants for the work and participation. The results will not leave everyone satisfied, but the most important thing in this type of contest is participation and pride in the work submited. Bearing this purpose in mind, the bYou project team asks participants for understanding and acceptance.
