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.' 

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. 

2019 presents a refreshed judging panel, all who are thrilled to be judging the latest surface material applications for international projects.

Entries to the 2019 Awards are now closed, we received a record number of entries this year from 22 countries. The shorlist will be released in November, with winners announced at the Surface Design Awards Presentation, 7 Feb 2018.
