Webby Honoree

The Webby Awards

The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet.

Established in 1996 during the Web’s infancy, The Webbys is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS)—a 2000+ member judging body. The Academy is comprised of Executive Members—leading Internet experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities—and Associate Members who are former Webby Winners, Nominees and other Internet professionals.

“The Internet's highest honor.”

— The New York Times

Reflecting the tremendous growth of the Internet, The Webbys now honors excellence in 7 major media types: Websites, Video, Advertising, Media & PR, Social, Apps, Mobile, & Voice, Games, and Podcasts.

The Webby Awards presents two honors in every category—The Webby Award and The Webby People’s Voice Award. Members of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) select the Nominees for both awards in each category, as well as the Winners of The Webby Awards. In the spirit of the open Web, The Webby People’s Voice is awarded by the voting public. Each year, The Webby People’s Voice Awards garners millions of votes from all over the world.

ATypI Speaker

ATypI Speaker

ATypI 2020 All Over is the first virtual conference presented by the Association Typographique Internationale. Due to the global pandemic we have all been facing, and out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and safety of our typographic family, we made the decision to postpone our Paris conference until it’s safe for everyone to travel and attend large events. Even though we can’t be together in person this year, we’re looking forward to bringing our community together in a new and exciting way.

ATypI 2020 will bring together typeface designers, lettering artists, publishers, developers, educators, and other members of the global type, tech, and design communities. ATypI is an international network that spans design professions, company sizes, and geographic areas of activity. We’re going to take full advantage of the opportunity to offer exceptional programming, networking, and social events, and to hear from top experts and new voices from around the world. We couldn’t be more excited—a virtual conference will allow us to be more inclusive and accessible than ever before. Proposals to present in languages other than English are welcome and encouraged!

ATypI conferences are known for taking place in stimulating environments where participants will meet like-minded professionals and students, make connections across industries, and develop extensive networks of learning, enterprise, and mentorship. This year’s big event is no exception! We’re creating a new kind of gathering that bridges cultures, generations, and time zones at the intersection of business and friendship.

It is in this spirit of comprehension, optimism, and inclusion that we invite designers, typographers, type designers, and type enthusiasts worldwide to join us the last week of October for ATypI 2020 All Over.

STA 100

STA 100

STA

The Society of Typographic Arts’s (STA) 100 competition is 40 years old. The STA brings the design community together by inviting and encouraging all creative professionals to help build a community with social, educational, and networking opportunities. Through events, activities, conferences and publications, as well as the STA 100 competition, the STA affirms its dedication to pursuing excellence in all forms of communication.

Competition

The STA seeks to identify and honor the finest examples of communication design and typography created around the world. The competition jury will select and present only the 100 best examples of typographic excellence produced in the previous year.

Judges

The jury of peer professionals represent a wide range of experiences and expertise that demonstrate careers of depth and substance. While they are diverse in their experiences, they are united in that each has made and continues to make a significant commitment to teaching what they have learned and applied.

History

Since it was founded in Chicago on October 17, 1927, the STA has existed to encourage excellence and professionalism in all aspects of design, printing and typography. Originally a chapter of the New York-based American Institute of Graphic Arts, in 1927 the Society of Typographic Arts created its own identity as an organization of Chicago’s leading professional designers, typographers, and printers.

Typographers R. Hunter Middleton and Osward Bruce Cooper were early Fellows of the Society, which was firmly established by 1939 when L. Moholy-Nagy and the Bauhaus came to Chicago. Through the years the activities of the STA and the work of its members have helped sustain the city’s tradition of excellence in all aspects of the graphic arts.

Image of Research

Image of Research

The Image of Research is an annual interdisciplinary exhibit competition organized by the Graduate College and University Library to showcase the breadth and diversity of research at UIC. Each year, students enrolled in a graduate or professional degree program at UIC are invited to submit an image they created along with a brief précis of how the image relates to the student’s overall research. A multi-disciplinary jury reviews the submissions and awards prizes to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and three honorable mentions for still-image submissions, and multiple winners for moving images submissions. Criteria for judging include: the originality of the image and the research it represents; the relationship between the image and the student’s research; and overall aesthetic appeal of the image.

The winning entries are currently on exhibit at the Daley Library and in the Library of Health Sciences, and are featured on light pole banners around campus. (View photos of past exhibits.) Winners, finalists and a wide selection of other entries received for each year’s competition are posted to an online gallery in the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI).
