All entries must be submitted using the electronic entry form.
Please read carefully:
The font complement of an entry submitted to the competition may include uppercase and/or lowercase letters, small caps, punctuation marks, numerals and other characters included in standard Cyrillic codepages (Macintosh Cyrillic or Windows CP 1251). Custom typefaces, as well as decorative, initial and display designs, etc., may have a reduced or extended font complement.
Inclusion of Latin glyphs is desirable but not mandatory. The minimal Cyrillic font complement should allow for composition of a text in one of the languages that use the Cyrillic alphabet.
Addition information about a revival typeface or a Cyrillisation (derivative design) including the names of prototype fonts, their date of issue and the names of their designers and manufacturers, should be indicated on the application form.
Entries should be submitted on an A3-size sheets (297 × 420 mm with a printable area of 277 × 400 mm). Entries in PDF format are preferred. TIFF and JPG formats are also acceptable.
The name of the typeface, designers, clients, manufacturers or distributors must not appear anywhere on the entry sheets.
The jury will only consider black-and-white images. Colour images are only accepted if the use of colour is a significant feature of the submitted design.
We recommend using the following guidelines and sequence for your presentation:
The entire font complement of a design submitted to the competition should be shown on the first sheet, in a large font size. Depending on the design of the typeface, a single font size should be used for the capitals, the lower-case, and the small-cap glyphs. The font should include a Cyrillic glyph set, either the standard complement based on the Mac Cyrillic or Windows CP1251 codepage, or their part, allowing the composition of a text in one of the languages that use the Cyrillic alphabet.
If the entry is a type family, the font complement of each constituent style should be shown on a separate sheet.
On other sheets examples of the potential use of the typeface should be shown. They should be reflective of the purpose and the special features of the design, and to display the typeface in the very best way possible. These specimens or their details may be later used in the catalogue of the winning entries, and the publications related to the competition.
The examples may include, but are not limited to, headlines, short or long passages of text, sample pages or double-page spreads of books and periodicals, screen shots of monitors, tablets, smart phones, and more. For body text typefaces designed for print, a sample text setting in various font sizes, from 6 to 14 pt., is mandatory.
