    The Society of Publication Designers has announced the call for entries for its 56th Annual Competition. The SPD Awards recognizes and promotes the best in editorial design, photography and illustration in print and digital mediums.

    All entries submitted in the competition must be published and dated 2020; this includes magazines with a split date 2020/2021 (please note: 2019/2020 issues are not eligible).

    Judged by a jury of leading creatives, the show produces a unique overview of the year’s best work across print and digital. The list of finalists for print and digital categories will be announced in March 2021.

    Open worldwide to editorial publications of any genre including consumer print publications, newspapers, independent magazines (circulation under 20,000), custom-published magazines, trade and educational magazines; as well as their mobile and web platforms. If you are a digital-only magazine, you will find a variety of categories to show off your innovative design as well.


    There are two rounds of judging. All pieces selected by the jury during the second round of judging are either Merits, Medal Finalists, or Medal Award winners.

    During the second round, judges vote on the Gold Awards for Excellence, the Silver Awards for Distinctive Achievement, and the finalists for Website of the Year, Video of the Year, Brand of the Year and Magazine of the Year.
