On August 31st, 2016 Snap & Win closed for submissions and the projects submitted were fantastic.

The contest was designed to have a digital platform for submission and viewing by the public. We added a feature that allowed all to see how the public viewed their work. The top project recognized by the public came from Tammy Pilon of Canada, who created a hand carved rustic concrete overlay for a bathroom wall. This project alone had over 7,800 people look at it with over 1,200 likes. As a whole, all entries in this decorative concrete contest had over 300,000 views.
With over 1,000 submissions, choosing the (5) winners was no easy task. The (10) submissions with the most votes by the public projects, were added to the final voting phase. All remaining projects were voted on by the following criteria: Quality of Design, Craftsmanship, and Amount of SureCrete Decorative Concrete Materials used on the project. We did our best not to be influenced by the surroundings of the project, which was no easy feat, as this was not a contest based on who had the best photography skills. The list was narrowed down one at a time and alas, here are the top (5) 2016 Snap & Win Contest winners.
