Coverings Seeks Submissions for 2016 Installation & Design Awards

Posted on 24 October 2015 by cradmin

Coverings CID AwardsCoverings is seeking submissions for its 2016 Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards. The awards honor projects that feature creative designs and demonstrate technical mastery in stone and tile in commercial, international, residential and sustainable projects. There is no fee to submit an entry and multiple entries are accepted and encouraged. It is open to architects, builders, contractors, designers, distributors, installers, retailers and other professionals who exhibit skills in design and installation excellence. All winning projects will be honored on Mon. April 18, 2016 at the CID Awards & Opening Night Celebration. The celebration will include a cocktail reception with a presentation of the winning projects during an interactive showcase. This will give attendees the opportunity to meet the professionals behind the industry-leading projects. The CID Awards & Opening Night Celebration is free and open to all attendees.

Entries can only be submitted via through Coverings’ online portal and must be received by January 18, 2016. Each submission must include a 500-word project narrative; materials information and a minimum of four photographs of the project. If the submission is for an installation award, photographs of the actual install and a technical write up describing the install are required. The entries will be evaluated by an independent panel of judges based on excellence in execution and installation, original and inspiring use of stone or tile and overall design and purpose of the project. Projects will be judged on their levels of creativity, craftsmanship, and use of materials. Projects featuring unusual use of materials or incorporating innovative technology will be highlighted.

Installers and designers of the Grand Prize winning projects will each receive a one-night hotel stay in Chicago and $2,000. All winners must be able to attend the CID Awards & Opening Night Celebration. If the chosen winner is unable to attend, the project will be disqualified and a new winner awarded, with the exception of international projects.

The “Scouting Shot” category is new to the CID Awards program for 2016. This gives projects with amateur photography the opportunity to be professionally photographed. The winning project will receive a complimentary professional photo shoot prior to the show. The photos will be on display at the Opening Night Celebration.
