For almost a decade, Concrete Surfaces and sister publications Concrete Construction, Masonry Construction, and The Concrete Producer have had a lot of fun with an awards program related to the annual World of Concrete trade show.

Most Innovative Product winners are selected by the magazines’ editors, a panel of industry experts, and anyone who cares to cast their vote. That means YOU.

The three constituencies must have different ideas about constitutes “innovation.” As you can see from last year’s winners, what contractors consider new and unusual isn't what editors and industry experts consider new and unusual.

At any rate, you’ve got until Feb. 15 to share your opinion. And no, you don’t have to attend World of Concrete (which is going on as you read this) to vote.

Go to At the bottom of each product page, you’ll see a link that says Vote for this product for the Industry Choice Award.

Have fun!
