Call for Entries: 2022 Coverings Installation & Design Awards and Rock Stars!


Coverings is pleased to announce that it’s now accepting submissions for two incredible programs. Enter your top projects to the 2022 Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards or nominate a young emerging leader to be a Coverings 2022 Rock Star by December 17. As always, multiple submissions are accepted and encouraged and there is no cost to enter either program.

Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards

The CID Awards bestows recognition for outstanding design and installation in residential and commercial projects featuring tile & stone. Architects, designers, builders, contractors, distributors, retailers, installers, and other industry professionals may submit their projects through the CID project submittal portal by December 17.

Projects will be evaluated and awarded in eight categories: Residential Tile Installation, Residential Tile Design, Residential Stone Installation, Residential Stone Design, Commercial Tile Installation, Commercial Tile Design, Commercial Stone Installation, and Commercial Stone Design.

Winners will be selected in spring 2022 after an independent panel of judges assesses each project on creativity, craftsmanship, and use of materials. International projects may be submitted, and all projects must have been completed between January 2020 and December 2021 for review eligibility. Winning projects will be recognized onsite at Coverings 2022 as well as in various publications and on Coverings’ website and social media channels.

Coverings Rock Star Program

The Coverings 2022 Rock Star program recognizes young, talented professionals in the tile & stone industry. Nominations may be submitted by December 17 by using Coverings’ Rock Star nomination form.

Coverings Rock Star nominees must be 35 years of age or younger and employed as one of the following professions: architect, designer, distributor, retailer, contractor/installer, fabricator, specifier, manufacturer, and/or trade association personnel. Nominees will be judged by a committee of industry leaders who evaluate experience levels; professional certifications or affiliations; previous awards or accolades; prior speaking engagements at industry events; quantity of published works; impact in the tile and stone industry; and traits that set them apart as emerging leaders in the industry.

The Rock Stars will be honored onsite at Coverings 2022; included in a Coverings press release distributed to dozens of top magazines and publications; and highlighted in a year-long professional feature on the Coverings’ website and via Coverings’ social media channels and blog.

Even in uncertain times, one thing is for certain: you work hard, and you deserve to be recognized for it!
