Modern Cyrillic 2014

An international type design competition, Modern Cyrillic 2014, organizers by ParaType, the main Russian digital type foundry, and Type, the online typographic journal, both located in Moscow. Modern Cyrillic 2014 is a sequel to Kyrillitsa99 and Modern Cyrillic 2009, which were organised by Vladimir Yefimov (1949-2012), the art director and one of the founding fathers of ParaType, and Emil Yakupov (1957-2014), ParaType's CEO. Cyrillic single-style typefaces, multiple-style type families and type systems developed for body text and/or display composition, and created and/or released after September 15, 2009 were eligible. The judges were Dmitry Aronov (Russia), Gayaneh Bagdasaryan (Russia), Konstantin Golovchenko (Ukraine), Yuri Gordon (Russia), John Hudson (Canada), Alexandra Korolkova (Russia), Natalia Vasilyeva (Russia), Jovica Veljovic (Germany), Danila Vorobiev (Russia). The jury was chaired by Maxim Zhukov. Judging took place in Moscow on November 25, 2014.

The Emil Yakupov prize from ParaType and a lifetime licence certificate from FontLab were awarded to Yana Kutyina and Andrey Belonogov. While it is not always easy to achieve, I would have liked a somewhat bigger distance between jury and winners---Hudson assisted Carter with Sitka, and Zhukov was consulted for Slimbach's Trajan Sans, for example.
