ABOUT







Monotype Web Font Awards

Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. is accepting entries through Nov. 7, 2010 for the first Web Font Awards, an international competition designed to recognize web sites that incorporate exceptional use of Web fonts. Prizes include two $3,000 cash awards, Apple iPad mobile digital devices and various typeface offerings from Monotype Imaging. Winning entries will be determined at a live judging event on Nov. 16, 2010, during the Future of Web Design conference, Nov. 15-17, in New York City. Winning entries of the Webfont Awards, in order: (1) The fifth issue of the German design magazine, Design Made in Germany, set in FF DIN, and designed by Martin Rack, (2) Armin Vit's Quipsologies, a division of UnderConsideration, uses Typekit fonts, (3) The German real estate database Markert Immobilien, which uses DIN Web Pro.

A brief post mortem: This contest was all about web page design---it had nothing to do with type design. I will not report on similar contests in the future.
