Some will judge the competition, but many students and professionals will help as “facilitators.” It’s a tough job, but one that comes with incredible learning opportunities and gives everyone involved a wealth of inspiration.

Even if you aren’t coming, she gives great insight into the type of things that go on over this weekend.

Also, check snd.org all weekend and Monday for live coverage of both the Best of News Design and the World’s Best Newspaper competitions. For the first time, both competitions will be judged simultaneously.
