Now in its 19th year, the Tile of Spain Awards are organised by the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers’ Association (ASCER) with the aim of recognising international projects that use Spanish-made ceramics in innovative ways.

A total prize fund of 39,000 Euros will be divided between three categories, which will highlight creativity in architecture, interior design and a final degree project by an architecture student.

This year the winners of the two main prizes - architecture and interior design - will each receive 17,000 Euros, while the winner of the final degree project will receive 5,000 Euros.

Every year a panel of judges comprising some of the world’s most respected architectural and design professionals reviews a wide spectrum of entries from Spain and beyond.
