National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) honored at the 2024 Graphic Awards by the Printing Industry Association of the South (PIAS)

Jackson, MS, June 19, 2024 – The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) is proud to announce that it has been honored with the Best of Category – Digital Printing for Promotional Piece award at the 2024 Graphic Awards presented by the Printing Industry Association of the South, Inc. (PIAS). This prestigious accolade was awarded during a special presentation at the PIAS 49th Annual Convention, held at the Hilton SanDestin Beach Resort in Destin, Florida.

The PIAS Graphic Awards competition is an esteemed annual event designed to recognize and honor the individuals and teams behind the creation, design, and production of top-quality printed materials. These materials are evaluated based on their impact, appeal, and effectiveness as sales, marketing, communications, or educational mediums.

Entries in the PIAS Graphic Awards Competition are meticulously judged by a panel of three experts, who use a point system to assess each piece. To receive an Award of Excellence, a printed piece must earn a certain number of points based on set criteria, which include the degree of difficulty, quality and technique of reproduction, and excellence in creativity, design, typography, and general layout.

NTCA Creative Director, Michelle Chapman designed and created the winning piece for Little Hands Little Tiles, an educational trade initiative by the NTCA. This initiative is designed to introduce children to the joy and creativity of working with tile through engaging and educational puzzles. These puzzles are distributed by industry members within their communities or given as gifts to inspire the next generation of tile artisans.


“Michelle’s work on the Little Hands Little Tiles initiative exemplifies the high standards and innovative spirit of the NTCA,” said Bart Bettiga, Executive Director at NTCA. “We are so excited about this well-deserved recognition for her work.”

PIAS represents more than 300 member companies across a seven-state region, including Arkansas, Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and West Virginia. The association plays a pivotal role in supporting and advancing the graphic arts industry within these states.
