Society for News Design honors World-Herald staff

The World-Herald has won seven Society for News Design Awards of Excellence.

That is an OWH-record showing in the contest, which had more than 10,200 entries from 39 countries that were judged Feb. 4-6 in Syracuse, N.Y. The 717 winners hailed from 29 nations. The spread of awards is wide; with seven awards, The World-Herald finished in a tie for 25th in the world.

Several pieces of exceptional work helped The W-H win in multiple categories.

Our winners included:

An Afghan boy waits to receive food, including flour, sugar, cooking oil and tea, during a humanitarian assistance mission in which Bravo Company, from the 1-134th Cavalry Squadron of the Nebraska National Guard, works with Afghan National Police to hand out food on Wednesday, March 2, 2011. After nearly three decades of war, Afghanistan is thought to be one of the most dangerous places for children, and its 30 million citizens must depend heavily on foreign aid daily.
