For the 20th edition of the competition, North America-based architects and interior designers are invite to submit new or renovated domestic and international projects completed between January 2008 and January 2013. A special panel of design experts will judge the projects based on their creativity, functionality, and aesthetic appeal. The official criterion for the jury includes: overall design of the project; innovative use of tile; tile design; quality of installation; 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 Atlanta, Georgia from April 29 – May 2, 2013, where the winners will present their projects to the public. The winning architect/designer in each category will receive a cash prize of $4,000 and a 5-day trip to Bologna, Italy to attend Cersaie 2013—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.
