November 2017

The prestigious Tile of Spain Awards in Architecture and Interior Design are back with a fresh identity and a total prize fund of Euro 39,000 across three categories: Architecture, Interior Design and Final Degree Project.

Projects can be located anywhere in the world, but must make significant use of Spanish ceramics, and must have been completed between January 2015 and October 2017.

After 15 years of encouraging, discovering and rewarding the creative use of Spanish tiles, the Awards have built a growing reputation within the industry. The latest edition has a fresh and more contemporary image.

The awards’ website has also been completely rebuilt and relaunched with a promotional video that has also been shared widely on social media.

The panel of judges is made up of internationally-acclaimed professionals working in the architecture and design sectors.

Spanish architect Iñaki Ábalos will act as Chairman of the judging panel.  He is the founder of the international studio of architecture Abalos + Sentkiewicz. His extensive professional career also includes significant experience in education.  He is currently Professor at ETSAM and resident Professor and Chair of Department of Architecture at the GSD of Harvard, where Ascer has a collaboration through the Network of Ceramic Chairs.

The panel of judges also includes Ángela García de Paredes of Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos; Víctor Navarro of Langarita-Navarro; Bak Gordon, a Portuguese architect; Moisés Puente, Editor of 2G; designer Martín Azúa, and Ramón Monfort from Castellón Architects Professional Association.

The prize fund of Euro 39,000 will be distributed across the three categories. The two main categories, Architecture and Interior Design, each carry a cash prize of Euro 17,000   

The third category is the Final Degree Project aimed at students of architecture and carries a cash prize of Euro 5,000. The panel of judges may also award two special mentions in each category.

The closing date for submissions was 24th October 2017.
