The New York Times wins first silver medal at SND Digital


The New York Times has won the first silver medal of the 2014 competition year with its Breaking Planned Coverage piece, “Senate Election Results.”

Judges remarks:

  • “This on a phone is so good. You can interact with this map flawlessly. I have never used a news graphic in JavaScript that’s felt as good on a phone as this one…. How good it is for your fingertip. I was shocked.”
  • It doesn’t necessarily look like it has to fit on mobile
  • “For technical achievement, I thought this was awesome.”
  • “This hits state of the art for technical.”
