The Granshan non-Latin type competition recognises the most notable typefaces for individual non-Latin scripts as well as multiscript families.
International font competitions – of which there are few – usually focus on Latin script. But small type foundries, global corporations and leading universities have all uncovered a secret: promoting non-Latin typefaces opens up enormous economic potential and fantastic design opportunities.
GRANSHAN celebrates the diversity and richness of the typographic scripts that underpin global communication, empower communities, and enable identity.
The GRANSHAN Competition covers a growing range of scripts for communities on a global scale – from the most widely used, to scripts in use by small communities or even under threat.
All type designers from all parts of the world are invited to take part in the competition.
The next call for entries is planned for 2019!
