Web Font Awards
Entries are now open for the second annual Web Font Awards, the scheme set up by Monotype Imaging to recognise the outstanding use of type on websites
This year's grand prize for both the Judges' Choice and Community Choice winners is a trip to London with a VIP pass to the Future of Web Design London Conference in the spring of 2012. Other prizes include Apple iPad 2s, subscriptions to Monotype Imaging's Fonts.com Web Fonts service and copies of the Monotype, Linotype and ITC font library products. The winners will be announced at the Future of Web Design conference in New York in November.
Contest entries can be built with Web font technology from any provider, including self-hosted solutions, as long as the site or Web page uses actual fonts that are served to Internet-connected machines through the @font-face declaration. There is no limit to the number of entries that an individual can submit. Deadline: October 28.
