SNDS: Mobile media included in the competition
Last year SNDS upgraded the online news design competition. This year SNDS takes a step further into the online media business by including mobile media in the Best of Scandinavian News Design competition.
"Mobile media is a growing platform widely used by news media. It is therefore natural for Best of Scandinavian News Design to include this platform in the annual news design competition," says Flemming Hvidtfeldt, chairman of Best of Scandinavian News Design competition, to snds.org.
Mobile media will be a category under the online competition. The net jury will judge the entries. The jury will base the judgement on the four basic criteria for all online entries – visual design, interactivity, usability and structure and journalism/editing.
The categories for the online competition are:
* Best front page
* Best section page
* Best article page
* Best theme (feature, story, subsite or page)
* Best application (for instance web-tv, maps, community, etc.)
* Best mobile site
* Best overall site design based on media brand
* Open class
Entries to the online competition shall be posted through the SNDS website. The entry form is open for posting of entries. Click on the below link and send in your online entries now.
The SNDS net jury is:
Kim Pedersen, Ekstrabladet, Denmark

Jari Jurkka, Pohjalainen, Finland
Entry form and description for the printed competition will also be available on snds.org soon.
