Opening the competitions following several months of hardship, unemployment and lost clients created a lot of uncertainty, said Elizabeth Carey Smith, TDC past-president and chair of its Advisory Board.  But as we found out, people channeled that uncertainty in incredibly creative, expressive ways, and we’re so proud of all the work submitted.  As an organization that strives to recognize typography all over the world, we’re also delighted this year to have entries from nearly 60 countries.

TDC67, now in its 67th year, is all about how letterforms are used, recognizing typographic excellence and innovation along with the art and craft of typography and design.  24TDC, in its 24th year, focuses on how letterforms are drawn, and celebrates new typeface designs in all global languages.  Both competitions have professional and student categories, and receive entries from more than 60 countries.

TDC67 and 24TDC winners receive a Certificate of Typographic Excellence and digital tag certifying their work is among the world’s best of the year.  Winning work will be featured in the highly respected TDC Annual, The World’s Best Typography® and showcased exhibits that travel to museums, schools and design organizations around the world.

This year’s awards competitions reflect TDC’s commitment to ensure diversity within its TDC67 Communication Design and 24TDC Typeface Design juries.

TDC kicks off The One Club’s virtualCreative Week 2021 on Monday, June 7 with announcement of this year’s Judges’ Choice winners and Best of Show for the TDC67 Communication Design and 24TDC Typeface Design competitions.  In addition, TDC will announce first-, second- and third-place Student monetary winners, and the first-place Student Typeface winner.
