World’s Best-Designed™ Digital News Experience

Each year, the World’s Best-Designed™ judges identify and recognize work that has fundamentally shifted or improved how news and information is delivered across digital platforms. Judges have awarded the World’s Best-Designed™ Digital News Experience distinction 20 times since 2010. The award has been given to websites, apps, overall experiences and organizations.

 We have released a database of World’s Best-Designed™ winners and finalists, with judge’s comments, through AirTable.
