Judging is underway! Check out our judges’ thoughts on the first few categories:
Quick to spot a fill-in:
“We have nothing else to put on our cover today, what are we gonna do? it ends up being a cliché almost” — Greg Branson
Want designers to make the connection with conceptual covers:
“What does the death penalty have to do with a martini?” — Greg
Careful with color:
“You’ve gotta know your presses when you’re designing.” — Reagan
“I admire the effort, the fun, the attempt.” — Gayle Grin on an inside news page.
All of the finalists in the non-daily news cover category were magazine-style and tabloid-shaped, not conventional news pages.
