The winning photographs in the ''Comunicar, ligar, unir'' (Communicate, connect, unite) photography contest have been selected. The contest was launched by ANACOM in partnership with VISÃO as part of the commemorations marking 30 years of its activity.
The challenge to participate in the contest was taken on by dozens of photographers, who sent pictures that, in their view, best responded to the theme. The judging panel received about 680 photographs for appraisal and made a pre-selection in each category (general, mobile, youth and professional). The winners were then chosen from among these photographs. The judging panel http://visao.sapo.pt/concursoanacom/2019-04-02-O-Juri-do-Concurso decided only to award an honourable mention in the professional category and not to award a prize in this category, while awarding two prizes in the youth category (tied winners).
