Ceramics of Italy announced the official call for entries for the 2020 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition.

Hosted by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Agency, this annual competition awards North American architects, designers and students for their outstanding projects and creative applications of Italian ceramic and porcelain tile.

Winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to New Orleans, where they will present their work to an audience of industry professionals and design media at Coverings 2020. The prize package for built project winners also includes $2,000 in cash, plus an all-expenses-paid CEU trip to Bologna, Italy for Cersaie 2020.
