We’re just one day away from kicking off the 2010 judging of World’s Best-Designed in Syracuse. What better time to look back at the first SND-awarded “best” newspapers and magazines.
This year for the first time, the Category 12 was opened up to magazines not distributed as part of a paper. “A lot of what we’re doing is moving more toward a magazine style,” said judge Frank Mina, AME for Presentation at the San Francisco Chronicle.
