Tecnargilla, the annual technology and supply trade fair for the ceramics and brick industry, has announced the debut of The Tecnargilla Design Awards for its 2010 show (Sept. 27-Oct. 1, Rimini, Italy).

Prizes will be awarded to companies that “present the best designs for future collections of floor and wall tiles using innovative materials, applications and surface decorations that go above and beyond mere reproduction of effects that can already be achieved with other forms of decoration,” say Tecnargilla organizers.

Competing products will be displayed in a special area where Tecnargilla visitors can view them. An international jury, comprised of designers, architects, and industry experts, will choose the winners. A renowned professional will chair the jury panel.
