The 2019 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition is officially open for entries. Hosted by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Agency for the 26th year in a row, the competition awards North American architects, designers and students for their outstanding work on projects that incorporate Italian ceramic and porcelain tile. An international jury of design experts will review submissions from all over the continent and select winners in four categories – residential, commercial, institutional, and student.
The selected winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Orlando, FL for Coverings 2019. In addition, built project winners will receive a prize package that includes $3,000 cash and a 5-day all-expenses-paid CEU-accredited trip to Bologna, Italy for Cersaie 2019. The contractor/ distributor team involved in each winning project will also be awarded an additional $1,000.
