Call for Entries: Confindustria Ceramica, the Italian Association of Ceramics, and the Italian Trade Commission proudly announce the 2014 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition. Now in its 21st year, the contest is the longest running competition of its kind and is open to North America-based architects and designers who have used Italian ceramic tile in their residential, institutional, and commercial/hospitality projects completed completed between January 2009 and January 2014.
The jury will judge the projects based on their creativity, functionality, and aesthetic appeal, selecting a winner in each category. The official criterion for the jury includes: overall design of the project; aesthetic and technical quality of installation; degree to which tile enhances the setting; and the project’s sustainable attributes.
Winners will be announced at the Ceramics of Italy International Press Conference during Coverings in Las Vegas, Nevada from April 29 – May 2, 2014, where they will present their projects to the public. The winning architect/designer in each category will receive a cash prize of $4,000 and a 5-day trip to Bologna, Italy to attend Cersaie 2014—the world’s largest exhibition for ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings. An additional $1,000 will be awarded to the winning contractor/tile distributor team in each category.
