November 7 is the last day submissions will be accepted, and winning projects will be named on November 16.
Allan Haley, director of words and letters at the corporation, stated that "web designers are now taking advantage of recent breakthroughs that allow for the use of a wide variety of typefaces."
He added that Monotype Imaging Holdings created "the Web Font Awards to celebrate this newfound typographic freedom, while also promoting awareness, adoption and outstanding use of fonts on the web."
By 2018, graphic designers, including those who specialize in web design, can expect to see a 13 percent employment increase, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
