Ceramics of Italy launches 2020 tile competition

November 2019

The official call for entries for the 2020 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition has just been announced.  Hosted by Confindustria Ceramica and the Italian Trade Agency, this annual competition awards North American architects, designers, and students for their outstanding projects and creative applications of Italian ceramic and porcelain tile.  An international jury of design experts will select winners in four categories: Residential, Commercial, Institutional, and Student.

In a new initiative this year, the organisers have introduced the People’s Choice Award, which will be elected by the public via Submittable's online voting platform.

Winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to New Orleans, where they will present their work to an audience of industry professionals and design media at Coverings 2020; North America's premier tile and stone trade show.  The prize package for built project winners also includes $2,000 in cash, plus an all-expenses-paid CEU trip to Bologna, Italy, for Cersaie 2020, the the world's largest exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings.

The deadline to enter is 17th January 2020.  The public voting period will begin 3rd February and ends on 15th  February 2020.
