Send in your entries for the digital part of Best of Scandinavian News Design in the below form for digital news design done in 2016. Deadline is March 1 2017. Read more about categories, prices and criteria below the form.
About the competition
An entry can belong to more than one category and can be awarded in any category that the jury may seem fit. The judges do not have to give a prize in each category. The judges can choose to rearrange submitted entries into other categories as they see fit, and if all judges agree upon this.
The digital publications will be evaluated by a special jury whose members have specialized knowledge of digital publications. This jury consists of six members appointed by Mediebedrifternes Landsforening, Norway, Tidningarnas Förbund, Finland and SNDS.
A fee will be paid per unit, which is submitted for evaluation.
The web sites are judged according to how well these four criteria are being used in the specific categories: Visual design; Interactivity; Usability and structure; and Journalism/editing.
THE WINNERS, DIGITAL
The jury will award Gold, Silver, and “Honorable Mention” diplomas. The “Scandinavia’s Best Designed Digital Media” award will be given to the best overall designed entry in the competition. In addition, the jury may award a ”Best Detail Award” for a very well made design detail.
When 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 at the SNDS conference in October 2015.
