Deadline extension for 2014 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition

The submission deadline for the Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition has been extended to Wednesday, February 12, 2014. This year marks the beginning of the competition's third decade, honoring the exceptional work of North American architects and designers who create imaginative spaces using Italian ceramic tile. The competition, sponsored by Confindustria Ceramica -- the Italian Association of Ceramics comprised of over 150 Italian ceramic tile manufacturers -- and the Italian Trade Commission, celebrates the pairing of innovative design ideas with products from leading manufacturers of Italian ceramic tile in creating spaces that are well-appointed, versatile, timeless and sustainable.ceramic tile competition 2014

For the 21st edition of the competition, North America-based architects and interior designers are invited to submit new or renovated, domestic and international projects in the institutional, residential and commercial/hospitality categories that have been completed between January 2009 and January 2014. The jury will judge the projects based on their creativity, functionality and aesthetic appeal -- selecting a winner in each category. The official criterion for the jury includes: overall design of the project, aesthetic and technical quality of installation, the degree to which tile enhances the setting and the project's sustainable attributes.

Winners will be announced at the Ceramics of Italy International Press Conference during Coverings in Las Vegas, NV, from April 29 to May 2, 2014, where they will present their projects to the public. The winning architect/designer in each category will receive a cash prize of $4,000 and a five-day trip to Bologna, Italy, to attend Cersaie 2014 -- the world's largest exhibition for ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings. An additional $1,000 will be awarded to the winning contractor/tile distributor team in each category.

The Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition is completely digital and free to enter. The online application, guidelines and an inspirational archive of winning projects from the past 20 years are available on the competition's official website, www.tilecompetition.com.
