Women Typographers Worldwide
Dec 19, 2019
In 2020, Typism is collaborating with International Women's Day to celebrate women typographers worldwide, helping to raise visibility and increase the volume of commissioned work for female lettering artists.
As part of this collaboration, we are hosting a competition for female hand letters to create work that supports the International Women's Day (IWD) 2020 campaign theme: #EachforEqual.

The competition is open to women typographers worldwide — novice through to experienced. There are three exciting categories to enter:
Each for Equal
Happy International Women's Day
Women's Equality statement or thought
We are looking for impactful lettering artworks for each of these categories. Winners will be celebrated on the IWD website in addition to promotion via the IWD and Typism social media channels.
