SPD 47: What the Digital Judges Liked
We concluded judging for our 47th annual competition over the weekend at FIT
in NYC, with co-chairs Luke Hayman, Richard Turley and Jeremy Leslie
overseeing the print judging and Scher Foord and Joe Zeff
supervising the digital judging, and Robert Newman
chairing the Magazine of the Year competiton. The explosion in tablet-based magazines resulted in a record number of digital submissions, including apps, websites and video. Before it ended, the five digital judges went before the cameras to talk about what they liked most in the entries they reviewed and what it all means for the publishing business.
