For the category of “Best newspaper cover design” the judges had a difficult time narrowing it down to five finalists. In the end, they liked two very different pages the most.
Here are the second- and first-place finishers, respectively. Congratulations!
Judges’ comments: “The good was really good. The not so good was pretty trite. A lot of things were focused on layout, rather than design. 1st, 2nd, 3rd — they all delved deeper.”
