Ceramics of Italy Launches 29th Edition of Tile Competition

New York, NY, December 1, 2021-Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Agency have announced that the 2022 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition is now open for entries. 

With previous winners like Rockwell Group, Perkins and Will, and Snøhetta, this prestigious annual awards program celebrates the exceptional work of top North American architects, designers, and students who use Italian ceramic and porcelain tile in their projects to create innovative solutions that demonstrate a keen understanding of the material’s practical, aesthetic, and sustainable benefits. An international jury of design experts will select winners and honorable mentions in four built project categories, as well as a winner in the Student category. Architects and designers based in the U.S. or Canada and students currently enrolled in a North American college or university are invited to submit their work through January 7, 2022. 

Projects in each of the four built categories-commercial, institutional, multi-family residential, and single-family residential-can be new construction or renovations and must have been completed between January 2017 and January 2022.

The competition guidelines, submission form, and an archive of beautiful winning projects from the past 28 years can be found on the Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition website, www.tilecompetition.com. The deadline for entries is January 7, 2022.
