The 2019 award show will be held in the spring

The award show for the winners of Best News Design Scandinavia 2018 is moving from fall to spring this year.

It means that the winners will be announced in April or May 2019 instead of October.

–  The board of SNDS has decided to move the award show. We find that the time between the jury evaluation of the entries and the publication of the winners in both the print and the digital competition is too long, Flemming Hvidtfeldt, chairman of the competition, says.

The board has also decided, that the award show will be held in one of the Nordic countries in conjunction with a media event. Which one is yet to be decided. As soon as the board has decided where and when the award show will take place it will be published on

– We hope that the participants in the competition will approve the decision and that the competition will benefit from the decision, Flemming Hvidtfeldt says.
