The MU Journalism School’s advanced magazine design class stopped by to watch some magazine judging… designers in the (silent) hot seats as the judges discussed their work!
Here’s some shots of this part of the judging of a full magazine or special section. They said it was the hardest section yet to judge, even a rarely-seen lacrosse special section. Pacing and overall consistency were what they looked for in winners. Magazines with great spreads but weak regular pages were eliminated quickly.
