Journalists from around the world have traveled to Syracuse, New York, to participate in the Society for News Design’s annual Best of News Design competition. The 2014 contest year brought in over 9,500 entries, and 27 judges will have the difficult task of evaluating each one. Approximately 40 facilitators and students will also be on hand to assist in the process.
As the weekend goes on, check back on this page for constant updates throughout the judging process. One new feature: We will be live streaming the “uncuppings,” which means you will find out what won at the same time the judges do. Follow @snd on Twitter and like us on Facebook to make sure you don’t miss any important moments.
At the end of the weekend, we will announce the Best in Show winner (if we have one) and the finalists for World’s Best™ distinction. Winners of those top honors will be announced on April 11 at SND’s annual workshop. Once the final results are tallied, we’ll publish a database of all the winners, but for now, you can follow along through the livestream, or photo galleries of winning pages.
