Pantone's Color of the Year for 2022


Every year since 2000, Pantone conducts a secretive process to select their "Color of the Year", which they usually announce for the upcoming year around early December. Let's see if we can forecast the Color for 2022.

What will be the Hue (in angular degrees) of Pantone's Color of the Year for 2022?

The question will be resolved according to the approximate hue of the Color as estimated by the relevant Encycolorpedia entry.

The announcement of the color typically occurs around early December, but the date is not certain, so the question will retroactively close 24 hours before the announcement is made.

This question resolves ambiguously if any of the following occur:

  • Pantone announces multiple Colors of the Year (as it did for 2016 and 2021).
  • Pantone fails (for any reason) to announce a Color of the Year for 2022 before 2021-12-31.
  • At the time of closing, Encycolorpedia does not have an entry for the color selected as Color of the Year, or the entry does not provide a Hue.
  • The hue reported by Encycolorpedia is outside the range 0-360 (inclusive).
