The Surface Design Awards recognise examples of progressive design and the use of innovative surfaces in projects both in the UK and internationally. The 2019 Awards will crown 13 winners across 7 different categories, as well as a Supreme Award for the 'best of the best.' Entries for 2019 open early July. 

The 2018 Supreme Award was won by the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT), in Lisbon by architects AL_A. The project was praised for its use of traditional craft for the ceramic façade which is made up of almost 15,000 three-dimensional crackle glazed tiles.
