The two winning entries from Wismar on the topic "I want to vent - My appeal today, my appeal to tomorrow." were created in the summer semester 2021 under the project supervision of Hanka Polkehn, professor for "Designing Graphic Design, especially Type Design and Representation Techniques". The competition, which was endowed with a total of 2,500 euros, primarily targeted the means of expression of handwriting and lettering art, such as calligraphy. The jury selected three winners from a total of 34 submissions by trainees and students. Third place went to Deniz Akinci from the Hochschule RhineMain, University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden (Germany).

The Klingspor Museum für Buch- und Schriftkunst (Herrnstraße 80, 63065 Offenbach am Main) preserves Spemann's estate and organises the biennial competition for lettering art in his honour.
