Coverings 2021 Installation & Design (CID) Awards

Submissions for the Coverings 2021 Installation & Design (CID) Awards competition are now open to architects, designers, builders, contractors, distributors, retailers, installers, and other professionals who demonstrate design and/or installation excellence in residential and commercial projects, giving special recognition to stunning use of stone & tile. UPDATED DEADLINE: Friday, March 26, 2021
  • Projects must have been completed within the past 2 years (Jan 2019 – Dec 2020)
  • Projects can be located within or outside North America
  • Multiple entries are accepted and encouraged. Separate forms are required for each entry.
In effort to keep judging anonymous, please leave out any mention of the designer, installer, or others involved with the project in the narrative. The only place the projects should be identified are on the initial Entrant and Participant Details page.

Projects will be judged separately on installation and design, with entry forms specific to each field of work. Projects will be judged on their levels of creativity, craftsmanship, outstanding use of materials, and achievement in the use of tile or stone within the residential and commercial project categories. Of particular interest are projects that demonstrate an original or unusual use of materials, incorporate an innovative technology, reflect installation excellence, or successfully combine aesthetics with function in a unique and interesting way.

An independent panel of judges for all award categories will evaluate entries using a blind format based on Excellence in Execution, Inspiring + Original Use and Overall Purpose. Decisions are at the discretion of the jury.

All winners will win a free one-night stay in Orlando to attend Coverings 2021 and recognition at the show as well as in TileLetter Magazine and the Coverings Website. Additional projects may be recognized for Special Recognition categories such as International, Artistic Use of Tile/Stone, Institutional, Community Project and others, based on submissions received. Winners will also have their work displayed onsite at the show.
