The Society for News Design announced two World’s Best-Designed™ newspapers, Die Ziet and The National Post, on Saturday at the #SNDSF closing gala.
SND37 judges noticed a few design trends as they look through more than 8,000 entries this weekend. At the end of the second full day of judging, here are a few of their observations: “In the winning papers I see that every part of (the design) has meaning and is integral to the understanding of […]
This morning, the temperature in sunny Syracuse was reported as low as -21 degrees Fahrenheit. Luckily for #SND37, we were inside all day. It being Valentines Day, judges and facilitators received a small token of our admiration, along with temporary pizza tattoos. The visuals team finished up graphics and are almost done with illustration. In […]
The Earth is round and so were some page designs that used the circular shape as main element. Comments from a few of the News Category judges: Bad things: There are a lot of circle graphics or graphics that seem to be overloaded. They are hard to read when they are too fancy. There is […]

Today at Drumlins, the judging facility, all the judging teams worked very hard to get through a great many entries. We saw excellent work and many very deserving winners. Becky Markovitz was bringing you atmosphere from Syracuse and photos of some winners all day on Instagram. Everyone is very tired (including the person writing this post). […]
It was an eventful day at judging in Syracuse today. The good news is that the snow has stopped. The bad news is that means it’s about to get colder. I spent the day floating between an excellent student session and the hard-working long form team, taking a few Polaroids for my scrap book. The […]

Hello from snowy Syracuse! Wish you were here. The SND37 Creative Competition is just starting to get rolling. Judges are trickling into the hotel, snow is (of course) falling, temperatures are dropping and it’s looking like perfect weather to stay inside for the weekend. We’re hoping the snow won’t be too deep that we can’t […]
For all those descending on the Best of News Design judging for the first time, or who may need a refresher, everything you need is here.
It’s time to talk music. Very bad music, performed by your industry colleagues. The long and short of this is, a year ago, at SND36, the SND Foundation Karaoke Night raised $4,850 — more than double its previous judging record. We cannot revert to old ways after a year like that. Whether you’re attending or following […]
