The 2019 Morisawa Type Design Competition is calling for typeface designs in Kanji and Latin. The theme is "variable fonts" which is implemented in the OpenType specification.


"Morisawa Type Design Competition has been giving birth to new typeface designs for decades since the first competition held in 1984. Through entries with bold ideas and new attempts in anticipation with unprecedented expressive capacity, the last competition in 2016 received more than 700 entries from 49 countries and regions, including both Kanji and Latin categories," says the Competition's website.


The submission period is from November 1, 2018 to January 31, 2019.
