About the Competitions

The Type Directors Club has spent over 70 years uniting and celebrating typographic leaders from around the world. Through our annual competitions, we highlight the best of the best typographic work in communication and typeface design from studios and individuals both in the US and internationally.

The TDC Annual is a highly respected publication within the design community, and many consider it the highest honor and most prestigious accomplishment to be featured on its pages. In becoming a winner in our competitions, you become a part of our rich history of typographic excellence.

As part of our annual competition, we hope to encourage the typographic leaders of tomorrow by encouraging student participation and highlighting exceptional work through TDC’s Student Awards.
