The competition is open to any Final Degree Project from Spanish Universities or international universities with comparable studies. Students can submit final degree projects presented during the 2022-2023 academic year, before 18th October 2023.
Projects entered for the competition must make substantial use of ceramic floor and/or wall tiles in the project.
All the drawings do not necessarily have to match those submitted to the corresponding School of Architecture. Designs can be therefore improved following submission for the final degree project and prior to entry in the competition.
Entry implies the acceptance of these rules.
First prize: 5.000 Euros
Each prize will be taxed in accordance with current legislation.
The panel of judges reserves the right to make special mentions in order to highlight outstanding characteristics of certain projects.
The winning projects will be published on the official competition website www.tileofspainawards.com, as well as in the special book published to commemorate the competition and in the press dossiers published around the world.
