This year SNDS raises the level for the annual design competition and sets new standards for Scandinavian news design. SNDS will honor the best print and online media in Scandinavia. But for this we need you to join the competition and to find your best designs to enter in the competition. So get to work now!
Scandinavian design is among the best in the world. This goes for web design and newspaper design as well. For decades Scandinavian media have led the way to great ways of presenting news, to new ways of defining journalism, and especially to using the potential in the presentation of stories. The visual presentation is essential if we want people to use our media products. In Scandinavia we have the skills to bring new life to the written word using powerful presentation.
Year after year in both the Scandinavian and the international SND competitions, Scandinavian media have been awarded as the best designed in the whole world.
The new award: best designed
This year, the committee behind the SNDS competition – the Best of Scandinavian News Design – has decided to focus even more on these skills and qualities. That is why every participant in the competition will also participate to win the new prestigious award: Scandinavia’s Best Designed.
If you want a chance to win you only have to do in enter in the competition. Enter in any regular category and you will automatically be judged – for free – for the Scandinavia’s Best Designed.
You will need to send in three copies of your work. If you’re a print media, you must send in a whole newspaper published one day in 2011. If you’re an online media, send link to the publication or site you think was the best in 2011. Get going – join the competition!
More categories for online
Other changes have been made to make it even more attractive to participate. We have changed the rules for print media so that these will be judged in two categories, depending on circulation numbers – below or over 25,000. This will give the jury a better basis for evaluating the entries, and will give smaller newspapers a better chance to win awards.
For online media the number of categories has increased, so it is now possible to submit even more different entries.
Time to go to work
So now it is time to find your best designs published in 2011 and enter them in this year’s competition. The winners will be announced in Copenhagen in September. The competition committee and the jury are waiting in eager expectation to see all your entries – and we are ready to start working.
