Each year, The Society of Typographic Aficionados recognizes an individual 25 years of age or younger who shows both achievement and future promise in the field of typography. The award brings broad industry exposure to young people creating original works in the fields of typography, type design, lettering, calligraphy, and type history.
We encourage any young person active in these fields, whether a professional or a student, to nominate themselves for the SOTA Catalyst Award by submitting an entry.
The 2019 recipient will be awarded up to $2,000 USD in reimbursement for transportation and lodging expenses to attend the TypeCon2019 conference in Minneapolis, MN USA, August 28th to September 1st. They will also have their conference registration paid for and be required to give a 20-minute presentation of their work during the main conference program.
Submission deadline: March 16th, 2019.
