Excellence in Design and Photography (2023)

In a world where audiences are bombarded with images, design, and photography become critical tools in brand narrative, contextualization, and frame of the written content. Using stock photography is acceptable if done with a keen eye for choosing pictures that suit the audience 100%. A trained eye can spot less-than-perfect harmony in the design a mile away. And in the age of AI design, design templates abound ad nauseum and everybody runs a design studio from their basement. But it takes a master to understand and execute the complicated relationship of balance, design principles, and word – image – space balance perfectly. Well done to the artists whose work changes minds in different ways.

Certificate of Excellence

Each year, the SAPF presented a "Certificate of Excellence" to only the Top 3 in each category (writing, design, and communication). However, for the first time in 21 years, more than 15 to 20 publications achieved a remarkable score surpassing the 90% threshold in some of these categories, leading to the decision to increase the recognition to the Top 10. The moderators faced an exceptionally challenging task in choosing only 10, and they would like to extend their special recognition to the following publications, presented in no particular order.
