Be a part of the 2011 Ceramic Tiles of Italy Design Competition. This contest celebrates the distinguished work of North American architects and designers who feature Italian ceramic tiles in their institutional, residential or commercial/hospitality spaces.
Architects and interior designers are invited to submit domestic and international new construction and renovation projects completed between January 2006 and January 2011. A panel of design experts will judge the projects based on their creativity, functionality and aesthetic appeal. The official criterion for the jury includes: overall design of the project, innovative use of tile, tile design, quality of installation, degree that tile enhances the setting and the project’s sustainable attributes.
Winners in each category will receive a cash price of $4,000 and a trip to Coverings 2011, which will be held in Las Vegas, NV from March 14-17, 2011. Winners will also be treated to a five-day trip to Bologna, Italy to attend CERSAIE 2011 – the world’s largest exhibition for ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings.
