You Deserve to be Recognized!


Now that Coverings 2021 – the premier tile & stone trade event in North America – is taking place July 7-9, the new deadline to submit projects to the 2021 Coverings Installation & Design (CID) Awards or to nominate a young emerging leader to the 2021 Coverings Rock Star program is now Friday, March 26, 2021*.

The CID Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in the design and installation of tile & stone in residential and commercial projects. Submissions are open to architects, designers, builders, contractors, distributors, retailers, installers, and other industry professionals who completed projects exemplifying spectacular tile & stone applications between January 2019 and December 2020. There is no cost to enter, and entries should be submitted through the CID Awards portal by or before the updated deadline of March 26 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. Multiple entries are encouraged.

Submitted projects will be evaluated by an independent panel of judges and awarded based on excellence in execution, inspiring and original use, and overall purpose. CID Award winners will receive a complimentary one-night stay in Orlando, Florida to attend Coverings 2021, where their projects will be recognized in an awards ceremony.

The Coverings Rock Star Awards honor emerging leaders in the tile & stone industry. Eligible candidates must be 35 years of age or younger and employed within one of the following professions: architect, designer, distributor, retailer, contractor/installer, fabricator, specifier, manufacturer, and/or trade association personnel. Nominations must be submitted by the March 26 deadline, using the Coverings 2021 Rock Star nomination form.

Rock Star nominees will be reviewed by a committee of industry leaders and evaluated based on experience levels; professional certifications or affiliations; previous awards or accolades; prior speaking engagements at industry events; quantity of published works; impact in the tile & stone industry; and what sets them apart as emerging leaders in the industry. Selected Rock Stars will receive a complimentary one-night stay in Orlando, Florida to attend Coverings 2021, where they will be celebrated for their achievements within the tile & stone industry.
