2013 Concrete Surfaces Polished Concrete Awards Call for Entries

Enter by August 2, 2013


Polished concrete has grown from a niche to a mainstream design element. To recognize today’s most outstanding projects, the editors of Concrete Surfaces magazine have created the annual Polished Concrete Awards. We are asking readers to help us publicize the concrete industry’s advances in this important market segment.

In addition to being congratulated for a job well done, the awards will give concrete polishing contractors an opportunity to talk about award-winning projects with architects or building owners who might be undecided about what floor treatment to specify or install.

Our panel of judges will select one winner in each category. Readers can also vote online for their favorite project to win the Readers’ Choice Award. Winning projects will be featured in Concrete Surfaces magazine and its website, and at the International Concrete Polishing and Staining Conference, Sept. 12 -15, 2013.


  1. Projects must include a significant amount of polished concrete surfaces.
  2. Projects must have been completed by June 30, 2013.
  3. There is no geographical restriction—projects can be anywhere in the world.
  4. Although aesthetics are a consideration, this contest is focused on the involvement of the contractor in innovative design, construction, or materials, cost-saving methods, and environmental considerations.
Deadline: August 2, 2013
