Footnotes
[1] The jury moved these entries because of the corresponding affiliation to the display category.
[2] These entries were originally made in 2nd MAIN, but the jury moved them to 1st MAIN, as only the non-Latin received the recognition (not the Latin respectively the combination non-Latin/Latin).
[3] The entry received the prize for the Armenian typeface, not for the Latin.
[4] The entry was originally made in Category 1st MAIN, but was moved by the jury to Arabic 2nd MAIN – the award refers to the normal version, not the condensed.
[5] For the first time, the jury has decided on another recognition: "Honorable Mention". This applies to outstanding typefaces, where a jury member was part of the design team. The discussion and voting takes place without the involved jury member. Monotype had submitted the two Indian typefaces without the knowledge of Fiona Ross.
