Coverings 2013, the largest North American ceramic tile and natural stone trade fair and expo, has announced a call for entries for two of its award programs, PROJECT: Green and the Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards.
“With these two programs, Coverings is proud to recognize excellence in the entire tile and stone community by saluting professionals for their design creativity, craftsmanship and environmental stewardship,” said Karin Fendrich, Coverings show director. “Recognition of the projects selected for PROJECT: Green and winners for CID Awards has become a much-anticipated highlight of the show.”
PROJECT: Green recognizes sustainable new and remodeled commercial, institutional and residential projects featuring tile and stone. The program, now in its fourth year, is open to architects, designers, builders, contractors, distributors, retailers, manufacturers and installers. Projects must have been completed within the past two years and may be located within the United States or internationally.
The independent panel of judges will evaluate projects based on such criteria as positive environmental impact, environmental innovation, aesthetic design, and use of tile/stone products with environmental benefits such as recycled or low VOC materials. Deadline for entries is January 18, 2013. Selected projects will be showcased at Coverings in Atlanta, April 29-May 2, 2013.
The CID Awards honor achievements in outstanding design and installation of tile and stone in residential and commercial projects. Architects, designers, builders, contractors, distributors, retailers, installers and other professionals are invited to enter projects located within, or outside of, North America. New for 2013 a category has been established for international firms submitting projects.
Projects are judged on design and installation excellence, giving special recognition to unusual, creative and innovative uses of stone and tile.
The deadline for entries is February 8, 2013. Winners will be announced at the
CID Awards Reception & Ceremony on Monday, April 29 at Coverings at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. If winners are unable to attend, the project will be disqualified and a new winner will be awarded. International category entrants are encouraged to attend but attendance is not mandatory.
