The ÑH Story

The Best in Journalistic Design on the Iberian Peninsula


The ÑH Awards were born in 2004 with the aim of supporting journalistic design in Spain and Portugal, two neighboring countries with similarities of language and newspaper models. The goal was not only to reward excellence, but also to discover unknown best practices of smaller publications which rarely enter these types of competitions, possibly having an inferiority complex due to their size. Many small newspapers do great things and it is essential that such complexes be gotten rid of and their achievements be recognized.


Since then the number of participants at each year’s event have increased, demonstrating the interest of the media and reaffirming the belief that a competition such as the ÑH is needed to show the Best in Journalistic Design of Spain and Portugal.


Every year one media organization acts as host of the event, although the deliberations for prizes are always held in Pamplona. So far La Voz de Galicia, Expresso, Diario de Burgos, La Vanguardia, Heraldo de Aragón and i have been the co-organizers the ÑH Congress, the Best in Journalistic Design of Spain & Portugal.

The brand


The Best in Journalistic Design of Spain and Portugal is known by two letters: ñ and h. This is a play on the letters of the Spanish ñ and the Portuguese ñ (nh) and has become a point of reference in design, not only on the Iberian Peninsula, but around the world.
