Every three years the Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers holds its prestigious Triennial Awards competition.
Entries for the 2017 awards are now being accepted, so if you fit the entry criteria, please do put yourself or your business forward.
The Triennial Awards identify the buildings or structures within the area bounded by the M25 motorway which best demonstrate all-round excellence in the use of bricks, roof slates and tiles, and wall and floor tiles.
The Tile Association is managing the awards submissions for the wall and floor tiles element of the awards.
Judging is rigorous. The entries received are whittled down to a shortlist in each category; each of these schemes is visited and assessed by a panel made up principally of members of the Company’s Craft Committee. This results in a final shortlist on which each scheme is visited and assessed by the Award Jury, usually chaired by an eminent architect and including the Master of the Company, the Chairman of its Craft Committee and a Liveryman expert in each of the three crafts.
This process leads to the selection of a winning entry in each of the three categories and also, from time to time, a high commendation for excellence. The Awards are presented, often by the Lord Mayor of London, at a special ceremony in the City.
To submit your application, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that applications must be received by the end of the first week of October.
