We host annual competitions in support of emerging, early career, and world-renowned typographic talent, showcasing each year’s winning work in an exhibition at New York’s Cooper Union. After their initial debut, exhibitions travel to museums, schools, and design organizations around the US and 50 cities in 20 countries across the globe.
Winning work is honored in the pages of our beautifully designed annuals, distributed to TDC members worldwide.
Students are encouraged to enter the Communication and Typeface Design competitions. We offer a separate category for student submissions.
