This year's event will feature the participation of 27 countries, with an award for the most innovative country, either by content or by submission.

The creators selected are: Valentine Lent, João Pedro Filipe, Ana Maria Duarte da Silva (Janis Dellarte), Ana Margarida Serpa Silva, Ana Lebasi, Fernando Dominguez, Claudia Garrido, Catarina Ferreira and António Vaz.
