The Type Directors Club is the leading international organization whose purpose is to support excellence in typography, both in print and on screen. Through our annual competition and exhibition and frequent salons and workshops, we hope to celebrate the current stars of the typographic field and educate its future leaders.
We now invites the submission of entries to our 60th annual Communication Design Competition and 17th annual Typeface Design Competition, the most highly-respected and selective competitions of typographic and typeface design from around the world.
This year’s communication design competition is being chaired by TDC board member Gail Anderson, and the annual and exhibition materials are being designed by the New York brand and experience design firm Collins.
Alongside our annual competitions, the TDC also awards very special members of our community, those that have devoted their lives making our world a more beautiful place through their amazing work by bestowing upon them our most prestigious award, the TDC Medal. Through the TDC Scholarship and TDC Student Awards, we hope to encourage the typographic leaders of tomorrow.
Please note, the deadline for entries is December 13, 2013, but if you submit by the early bird deadline of Friday, November 1, you will receive a substantial discount on the entry fee. Late deadline is January 14, 2014.
Entries must have been produced or published during 2013. Submissions can be by anyone associated with the entry.
Winning submissions are displayed in seven exhibitions that travel the globe next year, and are also published in a beautiful hardbound annual, Typography 35.
