Design Competition Call for Entries

Dec. 29, 2006

Ceramic Tiles of Italy is now accepting entries for its 14th annual Design Competition. The award honors design excellence in projects that feature Italian ceramic tile. North American architects and interior designers are invited to submit residential, commercial and institutional projects completed between January 2002 and January 2007. Entries may be submitted for domestic and international new construction and renovation projects.

Previous winners range from star architects like Bernard Tschumi and Laurinda Spear to young up-and-comers. A panel of design professionals will judge the projects on: overall design of the project, innovative use of tile, tile design, quality of installation and degree that tile enhanced the setting.

Winners in each category will receive a cash prize of $5,000 and a trip to Coverings, which will be held in Chicago from April 17- 20, 2007. Winners will also be treated to a five-day trip to Cersaie 2007, the world's largest exhibition for ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings, and join a delegation of leading design media journalists. The organization will once again offer an additional $1,000 to be shared by the winning contractor/distributor team.

Sponsored by Ceramic Tiles of Italy & The Italian Trade Commission, the deadline for entries is February 9, 2007 (no fee or limit for entries).
