Interactive Inspiration [122]

Special edition with the winners and runner-ups of the Society for News Design’s 5th annual Best of Digital Design Competition

February 27, 2015

We often dedicate these weekly tround ups to some of the major competitions and awards out there, like the Malofiej Awards, the Data Journalism Awards, Information is Beautiful Awards and so on. An today is the first one of those special posts of 2015, now that the winners and runner-ups of the Society For News Design’s 5th annual “Best of Digital Design” competition are known.

A couple of interesting facts, from the release: The 2014 contest year brought in more than 900 entries, making it the largest body of work since the contest was established in 2002. The 15 judges from 14 organizations across the globe gathered at the Ball State University campus in downtown Indianapolis to evaluate those works, and we are glad to see so many familiar projects in the winners’ list.

Congratulations to all the winners – The New York Times, once more, taking the lead -, and a special mention to Danny DeBelius of NPR, for taking home the Gold in Individual Portfolio, and to Amanda Cox of the New York Times, for a Silver Medal in that same category.

Here are the interactive projects awarded in this competition:
