Calling all young type lovers:
The Society of Typographic Aficionados is happy to announce the second annual SOTA Catalyst Award for young people who have created original work in type design, type history, or other areas related to typography. The award recognizes a person 30 years of age or younger who shows both achievement and future promise in the field of typography.
The recipient will be awarded up to $1,500 USD in reimbursement for transportation and lodging expenses to attend the TypeCon2011 conference in New Orleans, July 5th – 10th. They will also have their registration fee for the main conference paid for and will give a 20-minute presentation to the main conference. The SOTA Board of Directors hopes that this introduction to a large audience of typographic aficionados will be a catalyst in the career of the recipient.
