The Society for News Design has announced the results of its annual Best of News Design print competition. The Globe and Mail received 35 awards of excellence and a silver medal for our staff design portfolio (a new record for the organization). The next highest award count was achieved last year, when The Globe took home 27 in total. A few noteworthy wins from this year:
- Our staff design portfolio received a silver medal. Judges noted that “They can handle everything: photography, typography, illustration. It’s really well-balanced.”
- The Frozen Frontline and Year in Photos projects both won awards of excellence in the Print & Digital Combination category
- The Future Cities paper takeover took home an award of excellence for Special Coverage
- The Saturday Opinion section won an award for section design
- 13 awards for front pages, including a number of pandemic A1s, Black Live Matter coverage, US election night, Flight 752, and Bias Behind Bars
- 9 awards for illustration, and an award of excellence for staff art direction
The volume and range of awards across all of the categories for design, illustration and photography are a testament to our editorial team’s collaborative work, across the (virtual) newsroom, to create memorable work during a very challenging year.
