The 29th edition of the Malofiej Awards for Infographics, once again organized this year by the SNDE and the School of Communications at the University of Navarra, has had to adapt to the current health situation. For this reason, we are launching a digital platform that will allow both for the submission of works and their subsequent evaluation by the jury. All works submitted to the competition, both in the print and digital categories, will use this channel. 


From 6 April to 30 April you can upload your entries using the new platform.


The 29th Malofiej Edition is open to all general circulation newspapers —daily or non-daily, broadsheet or tabloid, print or digital— and magazines published anywhere in the world, as well as syndicates or agencies producing graphics. Corporate or any professional association publications, advertising, publicity, and self-promotional materials are also eligible. College and design school students are accepted as well. You do not need to be a member of SND to enter. All entries must have been published between 1 Jan. 2020 and 31 Dec. 2020. Each publication or author may submit any number of entries in any category. It is possible to enter the same piece in multiple categories. Entries may be moved to another category or disqualified if they fail to follow the rules as outlined.

Print categories/ PDFs

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, submissions will only be delivered digitally using the new online platform. All entries should be submitted in PDF format. Entries must appear as they were published and may not be further edited. PDFs altered after publication will be disqualified. Entries that are double-page spreads should be arranged so that they are displayed as one single page. PDF files must not be greater than 20 mb.

Digital categories / Links

Similar to the print categories, all entries for the digital categories must be submitted through the platform. Works published in media channels that use a paywall or which restrict the volume of visits must include a username and password that will be valid until 30 June 2021 in order to allow the work of the jury.


Among all the works submitted to the Awards, the jury will award a “Best of Show” from all the works submitted for all print and digital categories.
