Judging comments:
“This issue of NZD is alive and engaging, starting with a bold cover photo that leaps from the page. Unlike other tabloid publications that fall prey to clutter, this one respects the beauty of white space. The writing is good; more than that, it conveys a clear editorial voice. That voice is both authoritative and conversational, aimed at providing ‘a relaxing, comprehensive read.’ NZD has personality and builds rapport with readers — it’s at the top of its game.

“Tabloid publications are hard to get right, and NZD does the format justice. The pages are not too crowded, and it is easy to shift from one story to the next. The cover was clean and focused with a great visual that carried into the issue.”
