Searching for the Best of Scandinavian News Design

prizeThe hunt to become Scandinavia’s best designed news media is going into the final stags. A print and digital jury will meet in Billund, Denmark, later in February to judge the entries.

The jury will award Gold, Silver, and “Honorable Mention” diplomas. The “Scandinavia’s Best Designed Newspaper” award will be given to the best overall designed newspaper in the competition. In addition, the jury may award a “Best of Show” award as well as a ”Best Detail Award” for a very well-made design detail.

As soon as the jury has completed the evaluation process, winning media will be informed that they have been granted an award, but not which one. The award presentation will take place as part of the SNDS conference which will be held in Copenhagen in October 2015.

We have received hundreds on digital and print entries. The deadline for sending in entries was February 8th, but we will keep the links to enter open for late comers. We are able to receive entries for the digital part until close when the jury meets. For print we are depending on the postal service. If you are in doubt of anything write to our secretary at and they will handle it for you.

The links are still the following.

Dagens Nyheter Best Designed News Media in Scandinavia 2014

For the second year in a row, Dagens Nyheter Friday was awarded as Scandinavia’s best-designed newspaper in the Best of Scandinavian News Design competition.


But also Helsingin Sanomat and received major awards at Best of Scandinavian News Design 2014 since they both were awarded Best of Show – something that is very rare in the competition. Helsingin Sanomat for their Teema section and VG for digital storytelling.



“It is clear, that many media houses in these years are moving resources from print to digital. The development is reflected in more standardized solutions, than we’ve seen before. But the level is still high, and the Scandinavian style’s simplicity comes through clearly in the most part,” says the chairman of print-competition committee, Flemming Hvidtfeldt.
