As a not-for-profit competition, the Wood Awards can only happen with collaborative industry sponsorship. Our Major Partners are American Hardwood Export Council, Carpenters’ Company, and Timber Development UK.

Wood Awards: The UK’s premiere competition for wood design and architecture.

Since being established in 1971, the Wood Awards has become one of the UK’s most recognisable and coveted awards in the timber design and construction industries.

The Wood Awards showcases the many ways timber can transform and enrich our lives; and acts as a vehicle to drive positive change in our built environment.
