SOTA Catalyst Award 2020 now is over!
The Society of Typographic Aficionados is pleased to announce its SOTA Catalyst Award 2020, annual graphic design competition targeted at young people who have created original work in type design, type history, or other areas related to typography.
The Society of Typographic Aficionados, an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, study, and support of type, is pleased to announce the 11th edition of annual SOTA Catalyst Award. The purpose of the award is to act as a catalyst in the career of a young person who does not yet have broad exposure in the profession.
Each year, SOTA recognizes an individual 25 years of age or younger who shows both achievement and future promise in the field of typography. The award brings broad industry exposure to young people creating original works in the fields of typography, type design, lettering, calligraphy, and type history.
