Globe wins 16 awards in Society for News Design competition

Boston Globe journalists took home 16 awards from the Society for News Design’s digital design competition, including a silver medal for breaking news coverage of the Marathon bombings.

The Society of News Design announced results of its design competition this morning. The competition recognizes the best in online design, interactive, data-driven infographics, and multimedia from news organizations internationally.

“It’s very gratifying,” said Dan Zedek assistant managing editor for design. “We did a wide variety of work this year, and I think it helped our readers have better insight into the news and the community.”

Judges singled out the Globe for its expansive coverage of the bombings.

“It shows the real power of what a homepage display can actually have,” the judges said. “They used their homepage like a homepage is supposed to be used. ... It was so powerful.”

The Globe also took home 15 awards of excellence. Infographics director Chiqui Esteban was honored with four, including an interactive package on Boston-area college commencement speakers through the years.

Zedek said this year was one of the team’s most successful. He said he believes this is because of the original ideas that were presented.

“It’s a way our readers can explore our world in a different way and understand things more deeply,” he said. “We had exceptional creativity.”
