Attention all designers: Linotype is running an Arabic Type Design Contest. This is exciting! Linotype used to be the best source of Arabic type in the pre-desktop publishing days (and also in the beginning of the DTP ear). It seems they regained interest in Arabic type (it’s about time too!).
SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 31, 2005. So hurry up!
See the details here. Linotype have provided detailed information on how to submit entries, and even provided some instructions on how to generate the fonts in a proper manner.
Thanks to our friend Alexander Brancyck of xplicit for bringing this to my attention.
