Comments from the judges on illustrations:

While looking at the illustrations category, the judges said it was the toughest category so far and all of the winners were really close.

First Place
“The Dawn of Facebook”
I like the movement and the chaos they’ve created with the layers of facebook. Plus it’s got a nice use of color, tone. The illustration on its own, looking at it from a purely aesthetic standpoint, it works. Very recognizable — right away you know what the story’s about. I just can’t find any flaws with the illustration.
I was immediately struck by it, and I think it’s a great thing.
Second Place
“Exhibitionist”
This one is pretty sophisticated, too. Really illustrates the story brilliantly. Very nicely done. Quality that you stare and you keep finding things.

Second Place
“Blago Breakdown”: Like the sophistication and the idea. It’s classic.

Category B17: Redesigns

No winners selected.

Comments from the judges on redesigns:
The judges decided there was no winner in the redesign of non-daily category.
Bill Gaspard: There were some dramatic differences between the old and the new. But if the new can’t win on its own, it’s not just the difference that makes it a winner. I think they made some improvements, but they didn’t go far enough to make it a solid entry. There’s still format flaws in the new ones.
Dave Elsesser: No one was able to change content really. In a couple of places they went to wider legs of type, which makes it harder to read in theory.
Tippi Thole: Some of the changes were superficial. They’d change around some of the fonts but some of the flaws in the original were not changed in the redesign.

Category B18: Overall use of photography, one issue

No winners selected.

Category B19: Coverage of November elections

First Place: Veronica Sede, Donna Schichler, Natalie Riera & Cristina Puerto, Distraction Magazine (University of Miami), “The Political Issue”
