SPD Digital: Judging Excellence in Editorial Design Across All Digital Platforms
The SPD Digital Competition is the first competition to exclusively embrace and celebrate great editorial design being executed across all digital platforms--great design is platform agnostic! Send in your best work and be celebrated with the best of the best at the SPD Awards Gala in May, in the SPD PUB 45 hardcover Annual, and be put on a pedestal in the SPD.org Galleries.
We are also announcing this year, for the first time ever, the Site of the Year Awards where we'll crown the year's best website. To level the playing field we will offer two Site of the Year Awards for sites both with and without a print component.
