Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition opens

Home Press Release Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition opens

New York—Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Commission are seeking entries for the 2016 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition. For the past 22 years, the competition has served as a unique platform to showcase the work of North American architects and designers who utilize the high technical and aesthetic qualities of Italian tile. Each year an international jury of design experts selects three winning projects as well as honorable mentions in the residential, institutional, and commercial/hospitality sectors. Projects displaying the highest level of functionality, creativity, sustainability and aesthetic appeal will be rewarded with valued prizes as well as exposure in the industry.

To qualify for the competition, projects must be designed by North American-based architects and designers, completed in the past five years and feature a significant portion of Italian ceramic or porcelain tile.

Winners will be notified in March and officially announced at the Ceramics of Italy International Press Conference at Coverings, taking place in Chicago April 18-21.

In addition to travel and show accommodations, each category winner will receive a cash prize of $4,000 plus a five-day trip to Bologna, Italy next fall to attend Cersaie, the world’s largest exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings.

The online application can be found at tilecompetition.com. There is no fee to enter and multiple submissions are accepted. Deadline is Jan. 15.
