The organisers committee of the New Cyrillic 2012 type competition has announced extended submission date. They are glad to receive participants works up to 31 December 2012 23:59 Moscow Time.
New Cyrillic 2012 is a Cyrillic type competition for young type designers (under 35 years old). The total prize fund for 3 places 600 000 Russian roubles (€15 000). More information, submission details could be found at http://newcyrillic.ru
It's been two years, but Valentype makes a thunderous come-back. If you know what it’s like to passionately love a typeface, The FontFeed offers a golden opportunity. Declare your love for a typeface and you could win an official single license to four (4) weights/styles in OpenType, Offc or Webfont format of that typeface (for example Regular, Italic, Bold, Black). This love declaration can take any form you like: a poem, an image, a short text, whatever you feel like creating.
Previously limited to FontFont and OurType fonts, now more than thirty foundries participate in this year's type love extravaganza. Head over to The FontFeed for all the details.
I thought amateurs and fans alike might be interested in a contest going on by Design*Sponge and Veer. Readers have the opportunity to design their own line of typefaces for a $500 or $150 credit to Veer. Submissions won't actually be turned into working fonts, but it's a fun contest nonetheless.
