Open call for entries for Tile of Spain Awards

September 2021

Architects, designers and final-year students are invited to submit projects for this annual global competition, celebrating the innovative use of Spanish ceramics.

Now in its 20th year, the Tile of Spain awards are organised by the Spanish Ceramics Tile Manufacturers’ Association (ASCER) with the aim of encouraging, promoting and rewarding the use of Spanish-made ceramics in international projects.

Cash prizes totalling 35,000 euros will be divided between three categories, which will highlight creativity in architecture, interior design and a final degree project by an architecture student.

This year the winners of the two main prizes – architecture and interior design – will each receive 15,000 euros, while the winner of the final degree project will receive 5,000 euros. The awards are sponsored by ICEX España Exportación e Inversiones and Endesa.

Architect Carlos Ferrater of Office of Architecture in Barcelona (OAB) is to chair the panels of judges, which will comprise some of the world’s most respected architectural and design professionals. Every year they review high-calibre entries from all over the world.

In last year’s awards, the prize for the architecture category was scooped by Mesura Architects Studio for ‘Casa Ter’. First prize in the interior design category went to ‘Atlantis Gastrobar’ by Arantxa Manrique Arquitectes. The Final Degree project was won by Andrea Puebla Yubero from CEU San Pablo University in Madrid. The proposal was for a centre for unaccompanied under-age immigrants.

Entry to the awards is free and submissions are being accepted from now until 28th  October 2021. Projects must have been completed between January 2020 and October 2021.
