The SSND judges decided not to award any entries in categories A8a and A8b. Ultimately, there were too few entries in the categories.
1st: The Daily Tar Heel staff The Daily Tar Heel — University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill, “A President Prevails”
2nd: Distraction Magazine staff Distraction Magazine — University of Miami, “The Political Issue”
3rd: Daily Kent Stater staff Daily Kent Stater — Kent State University, “Obama at Kent State”
Honorable mention: Casey Horgan The Guilfordian — Guilford College, “Election 2012”
This round, the SSND judges expressed how it’s as much about what you keep out as what you put in for your designs. In some cases, they said entries in this category could have been more tightly edited. The winner showed the best combination of design skills and editing.
Congratulations to The Daily Tar Heel staff for their fantastic election design issue!
