Ceramics of Italy Launches 25th Anniversary of the Tile Competition
We are excited to announce that the 2018 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition has officially launched! Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the annual awards program organized by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Agency honors the exceptional work of North American architects and designers who feature Italian ceramic and porcelain tile in their residential, commercial and institutional projects. In a new initiative this year, Ceramics of Italy is also looking for imaginative concepts from students in addition to built projects.

Winners in the built categories will be honored with a rich awards package including: a $3,000 cash prize; a trip to Coverings, North America's premier tile and stone trade show, in Atlanta; and a CEU trip to Cersaie – the world's largest exhibition of tile and bathroom furnishings in Bologna, Italy – with a delegation of architects, designers and design media. An additional $1,000 will be awarded to the winning contractor/distributor teams and the winning student entry will receive a trip to Atlanta to present the project at Coverings.
