Posted on 26 January 2021 by cradmin

The Qualified Remodeler Master Design Awards competition was initiated 43 years ago to recognize remodelers, architects, builders, kitchen and bath specialists and other professionals for outstanding project design and construction.

The 43rd annual Master Design Awards competition honors outstanding remodeling projects completed between Jan. 1, 2018, and July 5, 2021. The deadline to register is June 21, 2021 and the deadline to submit completed entries is July 5, 2021.

Winning entries will be selected by a panel of experts. Awards are to be made for Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in each of the 22 award categories. Judges may elect to award fewer than four awards in a category. They may also make special merit awards. The decisions of the judges are final.

Winning entries will be featured in the September 2021 issue of QR. Gold award winners in the kitchen and bath categories may also be featured in Kitchen & Bath Design News (a sister publication of QR). All award winners will be recognized with a plaque and a news release, and featured on the QR website (QualifiedRemodeler.com). Awards will be presented at a special reception the evening before the Remodeling Show (date and location to be determined). All entries are also evaluated for possible use in QR editorial features.

Coverings Seeks Tile & Stone Projects For 2017 Installation & Design Awards

Posted on 01 November 2016 by cradmin

coverings-17Coverings, the largest global tile & stone exhibition in North America, has opened its Call for Entries for the 2017 Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards. Available to architects, designers, installers, and contractors, the CID Awards honor outstanding achievements in the design and installation of tile and stone in both residential and commercial environments.

New to this year’s awards program the winners will be invited to discuss their project as part of the show’s conference program. Projects will also be displayed on a video wall and on signage throughout the exhibition floor, showcasing the work to the thousands of attendees. Prize-winning project teams, including each installer and designer, will receive $2,500 and a one-night stay in Orlando.

“There is nothing quite like seeing how the mastery of design and installation can come together to create truly astounding applications of tile and stone—the CID Awards put the spotlight on these projects and the talented teams behind each beautiful space,” said Jennifer Hoff, president of Taffy Event Strategies, the event management company that produces Coverings. “Furthermore, the awards illustrate the enduring and infinite design styles achieved by today’s tile and stone products.”

An independent panel of judges will evaluate entries based on several criteria including: excellence in execution and installation; inspiring and original use of tile or stone; and overall design and purpose of the project. Projects will be assessed on their levels of creativity, craftsmanship, and outstanding use of materials. Emphasis will be placed on projects featuring an original or unusual use of materials, incorporating innovative technology, or combining aesthetics with function in an interesting way. Winning categories will include Residential and Commercial, and based on the submissions received, may extend to International, Artistic Use of Tile/Stone, Institutional, Community Project and more.

Projects must have been completed within the past two years (January 2015—December 2016). Multiple entries are accepted and encouraged, and there is no fee to enter. Entrants should submit through Coverings’ online portal before the deadline of January 6, 2017.

The CID Awards are sponsored by Tile Letter and Contemporary Stone & Tile Design.
