2024 Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards

Submissions for the 2024 Coverings 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 that showcase ceramic tile and/or natural stone. There is no cost to enter.
  • Projects must have been completed within the past two (2) years (Jan 2022 – Dec 2023)
  • Projects can be located within or outside North America
  • Multiple entries are accepted and encouraged. Separate forms are required for each entry.
In an effort to keep judging anonymous, please leave out any name of the designer, installer, or others involved with the project in the narrative. The only place names should be identified are on the initial Entrant and Participant Details page.

Projects will be judged separately on tile and stone 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 or 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.

Winners will receive:
  • Projects displayed onsite at Coverings 2024
  • One-night stay (or equivalent gift card) at Coverings 2024
  • Recognition at CID Awards Reception during the show
