SASSUOLO, ITALY -- The international award dedicated to creators of living spaces, founded and organized by Fincibec Group, is ready to move forward. The Quinquennial Tile Award, now in its fourth edition, is directed at all those who, in various ways, have contributed to creating works with ceramic materials using the three brands of the group -- Century, Monocibec and Naxos-- between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2015.

In the meantime, participants will have 18 months to register by sending their applications online using the designated form on the websitewww.tileaward.organd attaching the required materials. Starting from this edition, registration will only be accepted online.

A distinguished jury composed of leading figures from the design, architecture and ceramics industries will select the five best works. The winners, who will receive a brand new El Ciclo electric bicycle, made in Italy, will be honored at a special event that will take place during the 2016 edition of Cersaie.
