SPD Call for Entries




The Society of Publication Designers serves the community of editorial art directors, photo editors and designers. Each year, SPD sponsors a publication design competition that recognizes the best work done by professionals for magazines, newspapers and online publications. Winning entries are published in the Society's hardcover Publication Design Annual -- again this year, photography students have the opportunity to be part of this world-class competition, and to have the chance for an incredible number of potential future employers see their work in the SPD Annual. Not to mention: the chance for some amazing prizes!
We know time is tight (it is for everyone!) so the Competition Chair, Catherine Talese has made this enticing, and easy: First, Second and Third Place winners will be honored with an Award of Excellence and an invitation to SPD's Annual Awards Gala on May 7th in New York City. Winning entries will appear in Pub 45, SPD's upcoming hardcover Annual. Even better, there's more: we want to help students get off on the right foot, career-wise, so to that end, the First, Second and Third Place winners will also receive...
