The call for entries for the 2015 edition of the Best of Sports Design. Entry deadline is March 14, 2016.
Today at Drumlins, the judging facility, all the judging teams worked very hard to get through a great many entries. We saw excellent work and many very deserving winners. Becky Markovitz was bringing you atmosphere from Syracuse and photos of some winners all day on Instagram. Everyone is very tired (including the person writing this post). […]

We cannot revert to old ways after a year like that. Whether you’re attending or following […]

It’s time to step up once again and assist with the Best of News Design Creative Competition.
The Columbia Missourian is unique because it’s a city paper serving the residents of Columbia, Missouri, but its staffed by the journalism students at the University of Missouri supervised by faculty editors. The Missourian recently launched a responsive redesign, and faculty news editor Elizabeth Stephens took us behind the scenes. Editors hope this redesign will aid in allowing […]
