Design awards for 23 Scandinavian and Baltic media houses

We are happy to present the results of the Best of News Design Scandinavia 2020!

All in all 37 media houses from Scandinavia and Estonia participated in the competition. The print and digital juries consisting of news design professionals from five countries evaluated 240 print and 111 digital entries. Eight media houses from Norway, seven from Finland, five from Denmark,
four from Sweden and one from Estonia are awarded in the competition with bronze, silver or gold awards.

The number of entries in the digital category is increasing year after year, and this time the amount was impressive, as was the level of quality and overall look. According to the digital jury there were cohesive and beautiful digital presentations in all categories. It shows that the media companies are getting comfortable doing digital journalism. Compared to last year there was now perhaps less storytelling and big data projects and more smaller things to enhance the value for paying customers.

In the print category the things that stood out this year were great illustrations both in local and national papers and a consistently high quality of journalistic photos. One of the highlights was the impressive modern storytelling in magazines. The quality in print was good in all categories, and it shows that a lot of effort is still put in the journalistic design work despite today’s challenging situation in print media.

The awards were meant to be revealed in a joint congress and award show in June. On account of the covid-19 situation we were unfortunately forced to cancel the event this year.

You will find all the winners of all the categories published here at snds.org. The diplomas will be sent to the winners by mail.

SNDS congratulates all the winners and wishes everyone a nice autumn!

This is amazing. One of the ones I want to make myself. This really tells the story that words can’t descripe. This really combines the city planning and their impact. Balace in combination. The start of it is extremely cool. Starts with a bang. Ususally vertical scroll is annoying but here it works! Aesthetically it is good, the colours are toned down well.

***


Dagens Næringsliv,
Norway, Redesign
This is a big renovation. Overall, the paper looks well structured, more modern and clean. Getting rid of old typography and old fashioned bulky design elements refreshed the paper clearly. The redesign brought elegance and style that was needed. Typography is one of the strongest points of the redesign – the leap is huge. The new layout uses modern and clean typefaces that are easy to read. White pages make the newspaper breath on Saturdays and the use of pink color keeps the branding solid. Although, the light pink balk on the page sides feels a bit random and the overall impression somehow framed, strict and rigid.            

***


Dagens Næringsliv,
Norway, Visual communication   
Guide til smart klimaspising       
Climate change has been covered from so many angles but this visualization manages to bring something fresh on a table. The presentation is playful and the dialog flows well. A clever way to communicate the hard debated topic.

***


Dagens Næringsliv,

***

The idea of the magazine is not original, but the performance is very elegant.

Page size helps make the overall look clean and striking. Very good font in body text. Plenty of good ideas.

***

Savon Sanomat, Finland, Sektion Fronts
