ALEXANDRIA, VA — The 2014 Coverings Installation and Design (CID) Awards, honoring the best achievements in outstanding design and installation of tile and stone, is now open for entries. Open to architects, designers, builders, contractors, distributors, retailers and installers, the CID awards celebrate creativity and technical know-how in the use of tile and stone in residential, commercial, international and sustainable projects. Sponsored by TileLetterand TADAmagazines, winning projects will be honored during Coverings 2014, the largest international tile and stone exposition and conference, which celebrates its 25th anniversary from April 29 to May 2, 2014 at the Las Vegas convention center. New to the 2014 CID Awards is the addition of a sustainability category for recognition of tile and stone projects that place a premium on innovative sustainable design. This new category replaces the PROJECT: Green program that recognized these projects in years prior. Additionally, a new online portal simplifies the process of entering projects for consideration for the 2014 CID Awards.

“One of the highlights of Coverings is celebrating and honoring unique projects that exhibit the highest levels of creativity, craftsmanship and outstanding use of materials,” said Karin Fendrich, Coverings show director. “We anticipate even more outstanding projects than ever before, especially with the new program updates we’ve implemented.”

An independent panel of judges will evaluate submissions based on execution and installation, original usage, and overall design and purpose, with special recognition given to those projects exemplifying stunning tile and stone. The grand prize winners of the residential and commercial categories will each receive $2,000 and a one night’s hotel stay in Las Vegas. Additional cash prizes will be awarded in each category. Winners must be present at the CID Awards reception and ceremony on April 29, 2014 in Las Vegas. If winners are unable to attend, the project will be disqualified with a new winner awarded (note: does not apply to international projects).

To obtain entry forms for paper entries, or further details on the program, go to www.coverings.com/CID. Entries can be submitted digitally via an online portal at: www.confeenceabstracts.com/CID2014.htm
