Portugal Público – Comunicação Social, S.A.

P24 by Público

P24 is Público’s personalised audio catch-up for its readers. It refreshes throughout the day and produces audio clips of stories that are customised to each individual reader, as well as providing the main stories of the day. The project is Público’s answer to the problem of how to better serve an audience on the go; one who may not have time to constantly check the website throughout the day, and who may miss important news as a result. After initial research, audio was picked as the best medium to solve the issue, and Público has identified it as a key platform for the future of the publication.

The Bureau Local

Central to The Bureau Local project is the intention to encourage the spread of ambitious data-driven local journalism. While many local media outlets are being shut down and resources centralised, The Bureau Local is driven by the essential desire to hold power to account at a local level; to make press more representative of those they represent. They do this by supporting a network of key local journalists - from traditional media outlets to bloggers - and providing vital data sets, statisticians and graphic designers to help local journalists yield investigative stories that might also resonate nationally.

Germany Edenspiekermann AG


POST is a tool that will help journalists measure the success of their own content. It was born out of a question: what is the most pressing issue facing editors and how could the agency do something to help? Edenspiekermann already closely collaborates with newsrooms across Europe. By talking to their partner organisations they identified that a key problem in newsrooms was how to integrate analytics on day-to-day basis for already busy journalists. POST aims to make life easier for journalists by giving them help at exactly the right moment.

Corby (Round 5)

In current world, the lack of information is not a problem. Much harder, especially for journalists, is to find relevant information among huge amounts of data. No human being is able to read everything that might contain something useful. Instead, we often have to rely on sources, who have an agenda of their own – or to be just lucky. We want to use AI in order to liberate journalists to do what they are best at: creating better journalism by using a wider amount of sources than never before. And by doing so, inform citizens and support democracy.

Local Voice of the People (Round 5)

People have many different sources and channels for content but less time in their hands. Audio content and podcasts provide an easy way to consume content even when multitasking. The problem is that audio content is often not so easily available or does not appear very well in searches. Through the projects there will be an answer to this problem by finding new methods and process of producing and publishing local news, current affairs and events in audio form in an easy-to-access and search engine friendly way.
