Excellence in Manufacturing: BAL wins TTA Award

Monthly prizes for great tiling

Tilers nationwide have been invited to display their skills, with a chance to win prizes, in the TilerWorld ‘Project of the Month’ challenge. The monthly competition is open to any professional tiler registered with the free online tiling community, which is supported by BAL, the market leader in tile adhesives and grouts. All that a tiler has to do is to submit photographs or videos of their recently completed projects, entering as many projects as they want.

The submitted projects are all displayed throughout the month in the TilerWorld Forum for scrutiny by their fellow tilers. At the end of each month, all members are invited to vote for the most impressive work. The winning tiler receives a certificate and £100-worth of BAL professional tiling products.

At the end of the year, the winner and runner-up from each month will be invited to BAL headquarters in Stoke to take part in a further competition to win terrific prizes.

Janet Till, BAL brand manager said: “The great thing about this competition is that a self-employed tiler working on their own has just as much chance to win as a large tiling contractor. The only thing that counts is the quality of the finished work. The judges are the tilers themselves and nobody knows better than the professionals how to spot excellent work. Entrants are invited to submit photographs or videos, but nearly all of them also submit such details of their projects as the type of tiles, the background, the challenges and so forth.”

Mark Ellam, a TilerWorld member since 2009 and a former ‘Tiler of the Month’ winner, said: “Everyone likes to be praised for their work, especially by happy customers, but it is particularly rewarding to be applauded by your peers. If you know that your work has been scrutinised by your fellow professionals up and down the country, in competition with other great tiling projects, it really means something to receive the most votes.”

A tiler wanting to enter their work just needs to register, free, at www.tilerworld.com/register and then post their photographs or videos to the Project of the Month thread in the TilerWorld Forums.
