Short description

The Type Directors Club, the world’s leading typography organization and part of The One Club for Creativity, recently has opened the call for entries for its two premiere global awards programs: TDC68 Communication Design and expanded 25TDC Typeface Design competitions.

TDC68, the Type Directors Club 68th annual international competition, recognizes how letterforms are used, honoring typographic excellence and innovation along with the art and craft of typography and design.

25TDC focuses on how letterforms are drawn, and celebrates new typeface designs in non-Latin letterforms.

A highlight for this year is the expanded 25TDC Typeface Design competition, which for the first time includes dedicated categories and expert judges for Arabic, Indic, and Chinese/Japanese/Korean. The competition has always accepted entries for those scripts; this expansion of dedicated categories and additional judges was prompted by the increased number of entries for these scripts in recent years.

Eligible work must have been produced or published in the 2021 calendar year. All entries must be submitted digitally.

The jury is selected and composed of the top typographers and type designers from across the world to judge all submitted entries.

Evaluation Criteria:

An original and inspiring idea
Well-executed
Relevant to its context

The winners will be notified in February 2022 by email.

Who may enter?

Typeface designs may be submitted by anyone involved in their design, production, or marketing.

Prize:

TDC68 and 25TDC winners receive a Certificate of Typographic Excellence and digital tag certifying their work is among the world’s best of the year. Winning work will be featured in the highly respected TDC Annual, The World’s Best Typography, and showcased in exhibitions that travels to museums, schools and design organizations around the world. In the student categories, three students for TDC68 and one for 25TDC will win monetary awards.

Entry fees:

Entry fees vary by category and start at $45 USD.
