Daily Herald editor/designer wins awards in national contest
Amanda Erd, a multiplatform editor and paginator on the Daily Herald's copy desk, won two awards in an annual contest sponsored by the National Federation of Press Women.
Erd, who joined the Daily Herald in 2015, earned first place in the infographics category, plus an honorable mention in the page design category, for work done in 2019.
Erd qualified for the national contest by winning both categories in the Illinois Women's Press Association contest in the spring.
Her infographic, which appeared April 22, was a package on a mock NFL draft. Her page design was the Dec. 31 Sports section front that featured Bob Frisk's annual column on sports quotes of the year.
