You should absolutely see this
Americans, unsurprisingly, appreciated the drawing referring to the situation in the United States, and more specifically to the results of the then-unofficial second round of the presidential election, in which Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump.
The main role on the cover of “DZ” was played by the Statue of Liberty, as he snipped the signature rim of the former US president with a mower, somehow removing him from his position. It is a clear symbol of the decisions of the Americans who have democratically submitted a Democratic candidate to the White House.
The following months showed that it was not an easy task. It all ended in a storm of scandal by Trump supporters at the United States Capitol, but in the end she won – Democracy.
DZ “obok” The Washington Post, “The New York Times”, “Die Zeit”
The Washington Post cover featuring Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who presided over the US Supreme Court from 1993 to 2020, received a similar award in the same category. She passed away in 2020 after 11 years of fighting cancer. She was 87 years old.
– This site is everything RBG has been around: iconic, powerful and recognizable – says the jury.
The competition also awarded, among other things, “The New York Times” and “Die Zeit,” although non-English media are exceptions among those awarded by the News Design Association chapter.
Don’t lose sight of it
SND has been in operation since 1979, organizing, among other things, a competition for the best print news design. It is an organization that connects people who mainly deal with graphic design in the media. Of course, it comes from print journalism, which is why it was previously called the Newspaper Design Association, but nowadays it also focuses on internet and multimedia projects.
It’s worth noting here that in December 2020, two DZ covers were among the best in Europe. In the prestigious Press Design Competition, the European Newspaper Award DZ appeared among the winners as one of four Polish titles. The first cover awarded is the one after Iga wiątek’s victory in the French Open (12 October 2020), and the second was about Pandemic (15 May 2020). The author of both covers is also Thomas Buchinsky.
