We are again recognizing outstanding projects in the second annual Concrete Surfaces Polished Concrete Awards. We ask our readers to help publicize this growing, important market segment.

In addition to some well-deserved publicity, the awards give concrete polishing contractors an opportunity to put their best foot forward and talk about their award-winning projects with architects, specifiers, and others in the construction community who might be undecided about what floor treatment to specify and install.

There are two major changes this year. We will divide each category into Existing and New Construction to allow entrants to compete on a level playing field. So each category may have an Existing and New Construction winner. We also have added a Concrete Countertops category. Winning projects will be featured in Concrete Surfaces and online.

Entry deadline is July 23. Entries must include a detailed project description, photographs, and a list of project participants. Further details and entry forms are available here.
