20 Danish awards in the 29th Best of Newspaper Design competition (updated)
Blødt oprør ("Soft rebellion") - a feature page created by Trine Münster-Swendsen – Jyllands-Posten's only award in this year's SND competition.
SND - Society for News Design - has announced the winners of the 29th Best of Newspaper Design competition. Four newspapers were named "World's Best Designed" - the most prestigious design award in the world: the German weekly Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung; the british newpaper The Guardian - a repeat winner because it does every day what others might take a week or more to accomplish; the Lisbon weekly Expresso, and finally the Moscow bi-weekly Akzia will all hold the title for a year.
In addition to these four top awards, 1,162 other design awards for journalism published in 2007 were released. The winners came from 14,818 entries submitted by 373 daily and nondaily newspapers around the world.
From the Danish media, only two newspapers found mercy with the jury. Politiken - who was named World's Best Designed last year - won 18 Awards of Excellence and one Silver Award, and Morgenavisen Jyllands-Posten took home a single Award of Excellence, a design by Trine Münster-Swendsen.
No metal were given to the other Scandinavian countries: Sweden won a total of 16 Awards of Excellence (6 for Svenska Dagbladet), Finland 5 (3 of them went to Aamulehti), and Norwegian newspaper Bergens Tidende won a single Award of Excellence.
