Entry Requirements and Policies


This competition is open to all websites and apps dedicated to the presentation of news. It is not necessary that these sites are part of a newspaper or magazine organization. All submissions must have been posted to the web or available for download between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016. It is not necessary to be a member of SND to participate. The competition is limited to live web pages or currently running apps.

All entries must be submitted to http://digital.snd.org/submit-entry/.

SND welcomes entries from around the world and every effort will be made to have a native speaker of the entry’s language included in the judging. However, we cannot guarantee that a native speaker always will be available.

Please be sure you provide specific URLs, and a user name and password if your site is subscription only. Entrants are responsible for web availability of entries. SND is not responsible for any material lost in transmission.
