Now in their 20th year, the Tile of Spain Awards are organised by the Spanish Ceramics Tile Manufacturers’ Association with the aim of encouraging, promoting and rewarding the use of Spanish-made ceramics in international projects.

Cash prizes totalling 35,000 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 15,000 Euros, while the winner of the Final Degree Project prize will receive 5,000 Euros. The awards are sponsored by ICEX España Exportación e Inversiones and Endesa.

Architect Carlos Ferrater of Office of Architecture in Barcelona (OAB) is to chair the panels of judges, which will comprise some of the world’s most respected architectural and design professionals. Every year they review high-calibre entries from all over the world.
