The Society for News Design’s executive director, Elise Burroughs, has issued a Call For Entries for the 27th annual Best Of Newspaper Design competition. The contest is open to all general circulation newspapers – daily or otherwise – including broadsheets, tabloids, and traditional or alternative publications.
Entries must have been published between January 1, 2005, and December 31, 2005. Entries from the United States must be received in Syracuse, NY, by January 18, 2006; international entries must be received by January 25, 2006.
Rules for the contest and forms for entering can be viewed, printed, and downloaded from SND’s Web site at www.snd.org. The information is available in English and in Spanish, and in both QuarkXPress and Adobe Acrobat .PDF formats.
Judging of all categories will take place February 11 through 20, 2006, at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in Syracuse, NY. Last year’s contest drew 15,020 entries and yielded 1,074 awards to 190 publications in 37 countries.
