Wins 15 awards in international competition

February 15, 2019

The Globe and Mail is a finalist for the prestigious World’s Best Digital Design prize, the top honour from the Society for News Design. The Globe is the only Canadian publication to make the finalist list, and the winner will be announced in April.

According to the judges:

The Globe and Mail is a precision machine. There’s a consistent intentionality and excellence present in all the design decisions, from the pacing of how each story visually unfolds to photo editing to dynamic maps. Storyform choices are organic, never forced, and the design is beautifully restrained. This is state-of-the-art storytelling.

The Globe also received 15 medals at SND’s annual Best of Digital Design competition, for a wide range of work covering long-form stories, photography, video and explanatory graphics.

A full list of awards is available from The Society for News Design.
