Aware of the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic brought to the country and to the lives of the Portuguese and the redoubled efforts that private institutions of social solidarity have made to support families in this new context, MSD Portugal decided to extend the application deadline to the 8th edition of the Maria José Nogueira Pinto Prize.
All people, individual or collective, who want to see their work recognized in the scope of social responsibility in Portugal, can apply, until the 15th of July, through the official website of the prize.
