Posted: The 35th Call for Entries

The Call for Entries for the 35th annual Best of News Design Creative Competition is now available in pdf form, along with editable Entry and Tally & Payment forms. Check back for translations into Spanish and other languages coming soon.

The entry deadline is Jan. 15, 2014, for U.S. entries, and Jan. 22 for international entries. Judging will take place Feb. 7-11 at Syracuse University.

I asked competition committee member Josh Crutchmer for a quick overview of the changes you’ll see this year:

“The most significant change is the addition of Category 20: Combination Print and Digital Presentation. This category is the first time SND has opened the print design competition to multimedia entries. Certainly it reflects the current state of journalism, but more importantly, it acknowledges the best work in visual journalism should be recognized based on its content without format limitations. Category 20 intends to recognize depth of presentation, collaboration and consistency across platforms. Its initial breakdown is news, features and sports. Entering requires that the multimedia portions of the presentation are accessible online during the judging and for the ensuing 60 days.

“Another notable change for SND35 is a breakdown of inside pages by category in the major page design categories: 3 and 7. In past years, “inside” pages have been thrown into catchall categories where a page on a natural disaster may have been judged next to a page previewing a sporting event. This year’s modifications address that issue and the competition committee hopes we have created new opportunities for organizations to enter inside page categories.

“Long-time entrants will also notice modifications to the graphics and illustration categories in the name of fairness in entering and judging. The Call For Entries explains every category in detail.”

Questions about this year’s competition? Send them to SND35 coordinator Colin Smith (colinsmi@mac.com), competition committee member Josh Crutchmer (jcrutchmer@gmail.com) or SND executive director Stephen Komives (skomives@snd.org). Thanks and good luck!

But, once you nail it, photographing your items will be a quick and painless task.
Wedding photography needs a person to set up the main equipment I-e
camera each time wants to take different pictures.

For example,even couple years ago we spent at least 2-3 hours before getting an image, because almost all stages of process of creating 3D picture were manual.

Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I’m using the same blog platform as yours and

com) please review this web page – About the Author:.
They capture the real moments not the choreographing preconceived moments for
last couple of years. When we go to other people’s wedding
or look at the pictures of their wedding we think and talk about how good the photos are and some where do wish to get the same quality
of pictures for our own weddings also.

Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this web site needs a great deal more attention.
I’ll probably be returning to read through more, thanks for the info!
