Last year SNDS upgraded the online news design competition. This year SNDS takes a further step into the online media business and will include the judging of mobile media.
“Mobile media is a growing platform widely used by news media. It is there fore natural for Best of Scandinavian News Design to include this platform into the annual news design competition,” says Flemming Hvidtfeldt chairman of Best of Scandinavian News Design competition.
Mobile media will be a category under the online competition. The net jury will judge the entries.
The jury will base the judgement on the four basic criteria for all online entries – visual design, interactivity, usability and structure and journalism/editing.
The categories for the online competition are now:
- Best front page
- Best section page
- Best article page
- Best theme (feature, story, subsite or page)
- Best application (for instance web-tv, maps, community, etc.)
- Best overall site design based on media brand
