Coverings 2013 calls for entries in PROJECT: Green and CID Awards

November 8, 2012
ALEXANDRIA, VA -- Coverings 2013, The Ultimate Tile + Stone Experience, has announced a call for entries for two of its most acclaimed 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 U.S. 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, GA, 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, GA. 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.

To enter PROJECT: Green and the CID Awards go to www.coverings.com.

There is no fee to visit Coverings or to enter either of these awards. And unlike many other shows, there is no charge to attend almost 70 informative educational sessions either. Professionals can register online at www.coverings.com.
