SND’s Best of News Design is the leading competition of its kind in the world and we are heading into our 34th year. Each year in Syracuse, NY, there is a dizzying array of work from all over the world. Inspirational coverage of important local stories, stunning features, eye-catching photos and awe-inducing graphics. Broadsheet, tabloid, magazine.
There are some places in the world, however, that it’s a little more difficult to enter the competition.
Take India for instance. The news is a thriving part of the cultural landscape with thousands of titles. For a news designer to enter SND’s competition, though, is far above what that person earns at their job. SND would like to help so we are trying an experiment.
SND India’s region director, T.K. Sajeev Kumar has reached out to news designers across India to submit their best work to him. A small group of judges will review that work and nominate for entry into SND’s competition. Meanwhile, we are using the crowdsourcing site Razoo, a site for non-profits to raise money, to help these designers put their work up against the best in the world.
If you’d like to help, here’s how. Outreach to different parts of the world has always been one of SND’s core principles. We have region directors from all over the world.
