STA 100 – Typographic Excellence Competition

The Society of Typographic Arts (STA) seeks to honor the finest 100 examples of communication design and typography from around the world.

Submit your typographic, professional or experimental work today and become one of the 100 for 2021!

The 100 best examples of typographic excellence produced around the globe are honored each year—in a wide range of categories including both personal and student work.

Entries must have been published between October 2020 and November 2021.

Judged by a panel of distinguished industry professionals, each member of the STA 100 jury has made a significant contribution to the field of communication design. Together, the panel brings unrivaled expertise to their selections, identifying only 100 winners and one Judge’s Choice award each.

The winners are announced during a live event, which is followed by an open discussion of that year’s work.

Since being established in 1927, the Society of Typographic Arts (STA) has been a vital participant in the Chicago design community. We produce events, connect creative professionals, and develop publications. Today, we are a 501(c)(3) membership organization serving as the driving force in Chicago design, presenting a much loved schedule of events.

The STA 100 competition is 43 years in the making. Each fall, The Society of Typographic Arts brings the global and local design communities together by inviting all creative professionals to submit typographic work and get recognized for it while building a network with unique industry opportunities in Chicago and beyond.
