Have you heard the news? The submission deadline for the 2015 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition has been extended to January 23, 2015. The hunt is on for the most original and imaginative spaces designed by North American architects and designers using Italian ceramic/porcelain tile for the chance to win $4,000 + a trip to Italy!
Sponsored by the Italian Trade Commission and Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics, comprised of 150+ ceramic tile manufacturers), the Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition is the longest running contest of its kind. The 2015 edition is open to architects and designers based in North America who have used Italian ceramic or porcelain tile in their residential, institutional and commercial/hospitality projects compeleted in the past five years (January 2010 – January 2015). Projects can range from hotels and hospitals to offices and apartments —they want to see them all!
The competition is completely digital and FREE to enter! The winning architect or designer in each category will be awarded $4,000 and a five-day trip to Bologna, Italy to attend Cersaie – the world’s largest exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings. An additional $1,000 will be awarded to the tile contractor/distributor team who worked on each winning project.
