Members' Choice Voting 2011

Members' Choice Voting 2011 Attention all members of SPD! As we get ready for the Gala on Friday, with a review of some of the Magazine of the Year finalists, and more to come throughout the week, we have one final challenge for you: time to select your top choice for the only Gold Medal selected by all the members of the Society -- SPD Members' Choice.

Entries are shown after the jump; you may click on each image to see a larger version of the entry on its own. Each member magazine is allowed to enter just one "best choice" from their year, in any format they choose. You will find visual solutions presented as covers, as single pages or spreads, as entire issues (as represented by a sample cover and inside pages), and your challenge is to apply your professional judgment and experience to choose the best solution. It may be design, photo, illustration or infographic; it may be a cover that stuns you or a collection of work from an issue that overwhelms you.

We encourage you to take some time before you vote; there's a reason we're putting this preview live this afternoon but not sending our members the voting link until tomorrow morning: we want you to have some time to look through all these entries and weigh your decision carefully. VOTING WILL CLOSE AT 6PM on Thursday, May 12th.

The Members' Choice winner will be announced at the Gala on Friday, May 13th. Finalists after the jump...

Below are the entries for this year's 2011 Members' Choice voting. All current SPD members will be sent a ballot and full instructions the morning of Wednesday, May 11th to begin voting. Voting will close at 6pm Thursday, the 12th!
