We are excited to announce that the 2017 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition has officially launched! Now in its 24th year, the annual awards program invites North America-based architects and designers to submit their most innovative and sustainable projects from the past five years that take advantage of the excellent technical and aesthetic qualities of Italian ceramic and porcelain tile. Projects that predominantly feature Italian tile – newly built or renovated, domestic or international – will be evaluated by an international jury of design experts in the residential, institutional and commercial categories.
One grand prize winner in each category will be honored with a rich awards package including: $3,000; a trip to Coverings, North America's premier tile and stone trade show in Orlando; and a CEU-accredited trip to Cersaie – the world's largest exhibition of tile and bathroom furnishings in Bologna, Italy – with a delegation of architects, designers and design media. A handful of honorable mentions will be selected and the winning contractor/distributor teams will also be rewarded. For more details, please see the press release.
We would love your help spreading the word to continue raising the bar of unique and outstanding submissions. To see examples of exceptional submissions, check out last year's winning projects below.
Deadline: January 6, 2017 | www.tilecompetition.com
