On Friday, a bevy of visual journalists will come to Syracuse University to help with the Society for News Design’s annual creative competition. Some will judge the competition, but many students and professionals will help as “facilitators.” It’s a tough job, but one that comes with incredible learning opportunities and gives everyone involved a wealth of inspiration. Last year we asked judging veteran Andrea Zagata to write this guide for first-time facilitators. She’s coming back, and so is this post, because it’s full of common-sense tips on what to pack — and what to expect — if you are also coming to SND34. Even if you aren’t coming, she gives great insight into the type of things that go on over this weekend.
Also, check snd.org all weekend and Monday for live coverage of both the Best of News Design and the World’s Best Newspaper competitions. For the first time, both competitions will be judged simultaneously.
We have an excellent lineup of speakers and topics for the annual student workshop in Syracuse from 12:30-5 p.m. on Friday at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
The speakers this year: Michael Whitley of the Los Angeles Times, Adrian Norris of The Globe and Mail (Canada), Andrea Zagata of The Buffalo News, Rob Schneider of The Dallas Morning News and Josh Crutchmer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
The symposium is sponsored by the Society for News Design Foundation and will also feature a student critique session. We’ll also offer an awesome door prize: one free registration to the SND annual workshop in Louisville, Ky. on Nov. 7-9.
The Society for News Design is now accepting entries for both its digital and print competitions. Your work will compete against the best news design in the world. More than 30 countries enter including websites, mobile apps, magazines and newspapers. SND gathers world-renowned juries in Syracuse, NY, and Muncie, IN, to determine the top work in a variety of categories including the selection of the World’s Best Designed newspapers, websites and mobile apps.
SND has recognized the top work for the last 34 years. For the last three, we’ve evolved our Best of Digital News Design to reflect cutting edge digital work from Washington DC to Moscow, Madrid, Spain, to Mexico City. You’ll find an array of new categories this year designed to make it easier to submit your work, whether a newsapp, site redesign, interactive experience or mobile app.
