Young Ones TDC

NEW FOR 2022! With the rich typographic history of the Type Directors Club now part of The One Club for Creativity family, we are so, so excited to include TDC’s Student Competition within Young Ones!

If you’re already familiar with TDC’s Student Competitions, don’t worry, very little has changed. The student work will still be judged alongside the professional entries, with the same globally diverse jury. And as always, the best student work will gain a level of immortality by being featured in the revered TDC Annual — one of the few awards annuals still in print! The main difference is that the top student winners will also be part of the Young Ones ceremonies during Creative Week next May!

If you’re new to TDC, consider this an opportunity to show off how you’re able to create type and lettering (Typeface Design) or make use of others’ type and lettering (Communication Design). This greatly expands on the categories offered in the Typography section of Young Ones, ADC. So if you’re in love with ligatures, drool over descenders, and go gaga over glyphs, Young Ones TDC is the place to be!

NOTE: Young Ones TDC has a much earlier entry deadline than the other Young Ones competitions. This is because they must be judged early in order to be included in the printed TDC Annual.

Deadlines

  • Regular Deadline: December 17, 2021
  • Final Deadline /w Late Fee: January 21, 2022
