Welcome to the new home of the Society for News Design’s digital competition, formally known as the SNDies. In addition to the new site, the digital competition has refined existing categories and added some new ones. These new categories now more broadly represent all of the incredible work being done for web, mobile and tablet formats.
The ‘Best of Digital Design’ will be an annual juried competition held by the Society for News Design to recognize excellence in design and usability of digital news design, information graphics and photography. The competition is open to all Web sites and mobile/tablet applications dedicated to the presentation of news and information.
The categories include: World’s best-designed news site/app, section/topic presentation, breaking news presentation, extended coverage, innovation, photo projects, use of multimedia, interactive information graphics, video projects, web site redesign, mobile design, news-based app.
It is not necessary that these sites are part of a newspaper or magazine organization. All submissions must have been posted to the Web between January 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2010. It is not necessary to be a member of SND to participate. The competition is limited to live Web pages and applications.
We hope that you’ll return to the page in the coming months to not only enter your own work, but to also see some of the other incredible work being done.
