This year’s Best of Multimedia Design

We announced the finalists in stages as they were voted on last week in SND Update, but Monday, the winners themselves learned which entries were recognized for additional levels of distinction. At the awards banquet at the Red Rock Ballroom at SND’s annual convention, Laura Ruel, coordinator of the Best of Multimedia Design competition, announced awards of excellence, bronze, silver and gold winners.

Read the full breakdown below and, most importantly, spend time interacting with these innovative, sometimes enthralling, always intriguing looks at the state of today’s news multimedia.
