The Straits Times' new look has won international recognition.

The paper won an award of excellence for overall newspaper redesign at the 37th edition of the Best of News Design international competition for its July 1 edition - the launch issue of the redesign of the ST across all platforms.

It also picked up two other awards of excellence in redesign for its July 22 and Aug 23 editions of The Straits Times' Life and The Sunday Times' Life sections.

The annual print design competition is organised by the respected Society for News Design (SND) - a US organisation which encourages high standards of journalism through design. The SND award of excellence is given to entries that are "truly excellent work, going beyond mere technical or aesthetic competency".
