Amidst the sea of design competitions, there is only one that shines brighter, one that's more clearly positioned, one that doesn't keep adding disciplines to earn more money, but remains true to itself and its quality aspirations: the TDC Competition of the Type Directors Club of New York. This award results in Typography – The Annual of the Type Director’s Club New York.

It focusses on type and typography and uncovers new talents around the world every year. Furthermore it does not concern itself with the financial assets of the competition and draws participants by low submission fees and the chance to present their work to a genuinely independent jury, who rewards skilled craftsmanship and innovative ideas.

»Awarded for Typographic Excellence« is one of the highest honors a designer can receive and the 2018 annual Typography 39 gathers once more the world's best type and typography! It shows the lengths you need to go to be world class. And it inspires you on your way there.
