|CONCRETE SURFACES magazine's 12th annual
Artistry in Decorative Concrete Demonstrations will take place again at
World of Concrete 2014. The live-action event, located in the CONCRETE
SURFACES Decorative Pavilion, features industry artisans who share their
techniques and experiences with attendees. The first two days of the
demonstrations will feature artist works-in-progress; the final 1½ days
feature completed project displays. Artists selected for the
Demonstrations will be eligible for one of two $500 prizes awarded to
the Attendees’ Choice and the Experts’ Choice.|
How to apply to participate
Artisans who want to participate in the Artistry Demonstrations may be either self-nominated or nominated by a sponsoring exhibitor. Click here to download the nomination form.
The editorial staff of CONCRETE SURFACES will select and notify artists, and there will be no appeals. Efforts will be made to include projects that feature a wide range of decorative and concrete surface applications.*
*The work must be created specifically for the WOC 2014 Artistry in Decorative Concrete Demonstrations.

What we’ll provide
A 10x10-foot concrete pad, electricity, and water. Hanley Wood will provide the slab or other concrete to the artist’s specification, as well as a lockbox for participants’ tools.
There is no entry fee, and artisans receive free admission to WOC. However, artisans must provide their own materials, tools, and equipment. A lockbox for tools will be available.
Any sponsorship arrangement between a sponsor and an artist are not arranged, administered, or overseen by Hanley Wood. Demonstration artist sponsors may have representatives on hand at the Artistry Demonstration area and may discuss with WOC attendees the products or equipment being used. (All Artisans may use and display any equipment or materials they choose. There are no restrictions on labeling of materials or equipment.)
What’s in it for you
In addition to the opportunity to show off your techniques to tens of thousands of World of Concrete attendees, you’ll also have a chance to win cash prizes. There will be two winning demonstrations: one selected by popular vote of World of Concrete attendees (Attendees’ Choice) and the second selected by a panel of expert judges (Experts’ Choice). The expert judges will be selected by CONCRETE SURFACES’ editorial staff. Ballots to be used for the Attendees’ Choice will be available in the Concrete Surfaces & Decorative Pavilion during the show.
