The battle for emoji supremacy begins with 67 candidates for Unicode 11

The draft candidates at this stage include more costumes and emotions based on faces and not personas that can be gendered or non-gendered. There’s even a “frowning pile of poo” to be had. Body parts, curly hair and redheads get their dues here as well as kangaroos and damned bloodsucking mosquitoes. And you’ll be entranced by the “evil-eye amulet” listed here, called a “Nazar.”
The full list is at the source link below the story. A final candidate list will be published in the fourth quarter before coding refinement takes place in the first quarter of next year. Implementation should begin in June.
