SNDS this year takes the Best of Scandinavian News Design to another level by announcing Scandinavia’s best-designed newspaper and digital news media
Last year it was Helsingin Sanomat who had the big smiles on. 9 print awards were given to them – one in gold.
We believe that Scandinavian News Design is among the best in the world. There fore we want to take the competition one step further by being so blunt as to announce the best newspapers and digital media.
“We are always looking for ways to develop the competition and now we feel the time has come to announce Scandinavia’s best designed news media,” says chairman of the competition, Editor in Chief, Flemming Hvidtfeldt.
The committee has decided that for the next competition all participating media houses can enter the Scandinavia’s Best Designed for free. The only requirement for participating in Scandinavia’s Best Designed is that the media house is has entries in other categories in the competition.
Online open for entries!
The online part of the competition has grown to become a competition on its own. Online jury chairman for many years, Kim Pedersen, head of online design at ekstrabladet.dk, has been so kind to take the online competition under his competent wings.
The online competition also has new categories to offer this year. They are now as follow.
- Front page
- Section page
- Article page
- Feature/News coverage (theme, sub site)
- Web application (tv/maps/interactive)
- Mobile app
- Mobile website
- Overall website design (based on mediabrand)
- Overall cross-platform design (media brand on online cross-platforms (mobile/tablet/web)
- Scandinavia’s best designed online media (based on an overall evaluation of design, functionality, etc.)
The online competition is open for submitting entries. Go to the online entry form and start submitting to make sure that your online media will be evaluated by the competent jury we have.
Last year no gold medal was given to the online entries. The jury was tough but justice. They missed the real good online news design. Are you the one that can show the rest of the industry how it shall be done? So go to the online entry form and submit your web, mobile or tablet services.
Best of Scandinavian News Design is the only cross-national design competition in Scandinavia. It is the biggest competition of its kind also with over thousand entries every year.
