The competition, called ‘Color Design for Fonts’, invites typographers, artists, graphic designers, calligraphers, photographers and the general public to design beautiful handwriting or the Bengali alphabet.
The event is being organized under BCC’s project titled ‘Enrichment of Bangla Language in Information Technology through Research and Development’.

In this regard, Mohammad Mamun Ar Rashid, Language Technology Specialist of Bangladesh Computer Council, Consultant and Teacher of Jahangir Nagar University, told Digibangla that designed fonts are inadequate in Bengal compared to fonts used for institutional needs. This competition is organized to overcome that. You can take part in the competition by following certain procedures. Details on font submission can be found on the website.
