The judges wrote: The Guardian’s design is reassuring in its consistency and clarity, as it delivers a robust daily package of news supported by a clear and distinctive architecture that ranges from large attention-grabbing promos to something as small as body text. Long a standard-bearer for news design, The Guardian is among the most studied […]
In the 35th annual The Best of News Design™ creative competition, five Society for News Design judges have named the World’s Best-Designed™ Newspapers.
The judges wrote: A remarkably consistent newspaper — from its front page to its last – with a striking symmetry, it is nonetheless lavish in its creative use of illustration, photography and white space. Its obvious attention to detail is a strong foundation for the line it walks between tradition and daring. This Sunday weekly […]
The judges wrote: A newspaper that’s designed like a magazine, Sweden’s largest morning daily delivers a no-nonsense news report whose strength stems from strong, boldly cropped photos. The design uses white space efficiently to present a lot of information without overwhelming the reader. The front page does not lose its impact, even while still offering […]
Good afternoon from Syracuse, where are finishing up the 35th Best in News Design™ competition (although the World’s Best judges stick around until Tuesday.) We have passed the 1,000 award threshold as we finish up the judging. The judges are in their final categories and will soon be moving toward discussing the potential candidates for […]
Good sunny morning from Syracuse, where we have begun our final day for the 35th Best in News Design™ competition (although the World’s Best judges stick around until Tuesday.) The judges have given over 900 awards and the International Web Desk is hard at work trying to show you selected A of E’s, and all of Silver and Gold Medals and JSRs.
Night falls on Syracuse and the SND International Web Desk is busy cranking out coverage from the 35th Best of News Design™ competition. And there is a lot more to come tonight and tomorrow.
The World’s Best Designed judges were hard at work on Saturday looking over all of the 192 Category 1 entries. And late last night, they made it through their first cut. What remains are 29 papers as judges have extensive discussions today. In this group of 29, judges will eventually select the few publications worthy […]

Now as the winners are assembled in SND’s Annual The Best of News Design™ book, here’s one last chance to get your work in there. On the cover. Submit your cover design by March 22. We’ll […]
Welt am Sonntag, Berlin, Germany The judges wrote: In a world of German papers so expansive in size that you need arm extensions in order to open them, Welt am Sonntag delivers its weekly authoritative report on a very broad broadsheet with surprising restraint. While many publications cram in multiple stories and entry points to draw […]
Politiken, Copenhagen, Denmark The judges wrote: After being named a World’s Best-Designed™ Newspaper winner last year, it would be very easy for any publication to become complacent or stale, but Politiken has managed to elevate its great work, and indeed, build on it. Politiken’s efforts have become a defined classic in the industry, but the designers […]
The Grid, Toronto, Canada The judges wrote: English The Grid is the perfect reflection of the community it lives in. We would describe its personality in six words: FUN, intelligent, bold, authentic, sophisticated, and young. The consistency from page to page and week to week is just staggering. And yet the staff finds ways to reinvent […]
Die Zeit, Hamburg, Germany The judges wrote: Die Zeit is a weekly newspaper that makes you feel smarter just by looking at it. It’s deep, calm and elegant — but not cold and distant. Die Zeit has gravitas and authority, but it can be playful and full of personality. An intellectual paper that is also popular with […]
Dagens Nyheter, Stockholm, Sweden The judges wrote: Dagens Nyheter is all about mixture. Topics range from serious to entertaining, with stories told in short and long forms. Looking closer, one can find variation in several more aspects. The makers of Dagens Nyheter have mastered a range of tools such as conceptual illustration, graphics and all kinds […]
