Granshan 2015, 8th International Type Design Competition

Granshan 2015, the 8th International Type Design Competition for non-latin typefaces has recently opened for submissions, recognizing the best non-latin fonts and font families around the world. The motto of this year’s Granshan Competition and Conference is “Global design in practice”.

In 2015, for the eight time Granshan will explore the enormous potential of non-latin typefaces and celebrate the diversity and richness of typographic scripts that underpin global communication, empower communities, and define identity.

All type designers from all parts of the world are invited to take part in the competition with non-latin (Armenian, Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Indic, Korean and Thai) typefaces that have been designed or digitized after 2012 and meet the competition requirements.

Entries are accepted in ten (10) competition categories and up to three certificates will be awarded in each category. In addition, the grand prize Granshan 2015, awarded by the jury, includes a money prize of 1,000 Euro. Moreover, samples of the winning entries will be exhibited at the different places all over the world. The winners will be announced at the ATypI Conference in Sao Paulo in October 2015.

The Granshan Competition is hosted by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Armenia and the Typographische Gesellschaft München (tgm).
