SNDLouisville will play host to the Society’s first hackathon, sponsored by Advance Digital. The goal: build and ship a product ready for use in 24 hours. Thinking about applying? Here’s what you should know.
Among the hustle of Day One, we sat down briefly with judges and asked them what surprised them today, what’s challenged them, and what it was like to vote their conscience. See what they had to say… and learn how to nominate future judges.
After seeing several thousand entries, certain things will begin to grate on the judges at the Best of News Design™ competition. The Wall Street Journal’s Sarah Slobin, a judge at SND31, has assembled a thorough list of overused visual clichés that have been infesting the ballroom tables here at Drumlins.
We’ve seen a few winners, we’ve seen many more cast aside and we’ve even managed to witness a couple of gold medal winners in the first day of the competition. What does that forecast for Day Two? While the judges managed to make it through 6,000 of the 10,000+ entries in day one, Day Two always bleeds into Day Three as longer form categories dominate the tables. SND Foundation President Denise Reagan has all the key info in the first ever mobile SND Web Desk update. Enjoy.
Come along, drop yourself into the madness that is the 31st annual judging. We tour the judging facility and get to know the crew a bit.
In a year that saw so much upheaval, Region 4 was as active as ever with bold changes happening at our publications in both print and digital versions.
