(ALEXANDRIA, VA—February 6, 2014) Coverings 2014, the largest international tile and stone exposition, has launched an online photography contest to honor the inspiring tile and stone installations, artwork, buildings and structures found around us everyday. The social media-driven sweepstakes also serves to commemorate Coverings’ 25th year, with two Grand Prize Winners earning a trip to Las Vegas during the show, which takes place April 29—May 2, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Coverings invites participants to upload their favorite photo of tile + stone, with an explanation of where they shot the image and the hashtag #Coverings25 in its caption. The self-shot photos can be submitted via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram, and there is no limit to the number of images each participant may submit – in fact, the more photos the participants enter, the more chances there are to win. Photo entries can be submitted until March 28.
The Grand Prize Winners will be selected to win a trip to Las Vegas to attend Coverings 2014 and a seat at a special VIP dinner with some of the most prominent leaders in the tile + stone industry. Additionally, Coverings also will give away smaller prizes every other week for the duration of the contest to recognize impressive entries as they are received. Winners for the weekly prizing will be chosen at random from all entries. Participants are encouraged to enter across all platforms to increase their chances to win.
“As we prepare for the show’s 25th Anniversary, we’re looking forward to highlighting how tile and stone impacts our lives everyday,” said Karin Fendrich, Coverings show director. “Tile and stone continues to have the unique ability to transform the look of interiors and exteriors with rich textures, color, warmth and fluidity that few other products can replicate. We’re excited to see what inspires our exhibitors, attendees and fans as we all prepare for this year’s show.”
