E o melhor cartoon de imprensa da Europa é… português
O Grande Prémio da edição deste ano do Press Cartoon Europe distinguiu Rodrigo de Matos, por um trabalho publicado no último ano no semanário Expresso. A distinção internacional foi-lhe atribuída por um trabalho publicado no Expresso Economia onde retrata a forma como o apuramento da selecção nacional de futebol para o Mundial no Brasil distraiu toda a gente da difícil situação económica atravessada por Portugal, onde perante as dificuldades e as políticas de austeridade esta surgiu como única alegria.
