The Web Font Awards is the first ceremony to celebrate the newfound typographic freedom that Web designers are experiencing across the globe. The competition will recognise the designers and websites that are putting this emerging technology to greatest use. Aimed at promoting Web font awareness and adoption, the Web Font Awards is open to eligible users of any Web font service or technology that uses an @font-face declaration. Click here for complete rules and eligibility requirements.

Even if you’re not a designer, you can participate in the Web Font Awards by rating and commenting on submissions. Simply create a free Standard User Account and rate the creativity, typography and usability of as many designs as you like. Our highest rated qualifying website will be named our Community Choice award. Additionally, three submissions will be nominated by Monotype Imaging and their media partners for the first, second and third place Judges’ Choice awards.

Future of Web Design conference

The competition culminates with a live award ceremony at the Future of Web Design conference, to be held Nov. 15 – 17 in New York City. Here, a panel of judges will debate the merits of each nominated website and determine the winners. You do not have to attend the Future of Web Design conference for your website to be selected as a winning entry. Winners will be notified by e-mail, and their designs will be posted on the Web Font Awards website.

  1. Somewhat unrelated remark (which I didn’t want to add to the press release) – this must be one of the crappiest logos for a type and design-related award I have ever seen. I can’t believe how poorly designed those three letters are.
