Newspaper and Magazine Overall Design

This award will be presented to entries whose overall design, originality and content have achieved levels of excellence deserving of recognition. Entries will be judged not only on design but on how design is used to project the contents. This includes the use of typography, photography, information graphics and colour.
These categories (2A & 2B) are for overall design of the newspaper/magazine and not just single pages or sections.
