The Best of Digital Design competition rewards skill, innovation and high-quality digital journalism. We invite entries from all news sites published anywhere in the world. The competition was launched in 2002 as a quarterly event. It was rebooted in 2010 as an annual competition.

All entries must be submitted online through http://digital.snd.org

Each competition covers one calendar year. Entries are submitted during December, with judging taking place in February. Winners are announced as they are verified. The competition offers several categories encompassing presentation of individual stories to overall design across different types of platforms.

Competition judges may issue Awards of Excellence, Silver Medals, Gold Medals and Best of Show honors.

Fees are $15 per entry for students, $25 per entry for SND members and $40 per entry for non-members. Fees must be paid in U.S. dollars.

Winners in the World’s Best Design News Sites category are announced at the SND Annual Workshop & Exhibition awards ceremony each spring.

The Digital Design Competition Director, a member of the SND Board, selects judges.
