The 2019 MIP has closed for submissions.
Before beginning the registration process, please assure that you have three things available:
- The complete name of the product you are nominating for an MIP award, as well as a short description of what it is and what it does.
- A brief explanation of what is innovative about the product and how contractors or producers will benefit from the innovation. Please include more than just its new features. Submit TWO product descriptions: One that is less than 100 words long and a second that can be up to 500 words. The short version will be used in the published product descriptions and the longer version will be used as the web site version.
- Your credit card information for the entry fee. Prior payment is required. After payment is received, you will receive an invoice and a confirmation email with a link to complete your entry.
We require at least one high-resolution digital image of the product nominated. That one image will be used to create the onsite signage at World of Concrete—we prefer an action shot but remember that the photo quality alone can determine whether your product wins an award so choose your photo carefully. This image will also be used in our editorial coverage, both on-line and in print. The preferred format is JPEG, 300 dpi, 8 inches by 10 inches. You will be provided uploading information in your nomination confirmation email. Your image should be submitted at the same time as the entry. All information must be received by December 1, 2018 to be included in the January 2019 issue of Concrete Construction and in the WOC Daily News.
The cost to enter is $650 per product entry.
Note: Only one entry per category. A company may enter multiple entries but only one in each category.
