Based on the success of the Granshan non-Latin typeface design competition held each year since 2008, the Granshan 2013 non-Latin conference will travel to Southeast Asia for its second incarnation:
Organized by Typographische Gesellschaft München (tgm) and its partners*, the core of the event is comprised of four days at the end of July featuring workshops, presentations, exhibitions and a symposium. With presenters and attendees from all corners of the world, Granshan is the only conference focused on non-Latin typefaces. As such, it has itself become a focal point of this rapidly growing and maturing field.
Now in its 6th year, the increasingly prestigious Granshan competition has added Chinese to the list of writing systems the jury is qualified to judge.
Organized by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Armenia along with Typographische Gesellschaft München, the competition entry fee is a modest 20 Euro, and a grand prize of 1000 Euro will be awarded. The deadline for entry is the 20th of September.
