The closing deadline for this year’s Wood Awards of the 24th May is fast approaching.
The Wood Awards is open to architectural projects and furniture pieces designed in the UK and Northern Ireland, completed in the last two years and not previously entered. There is no entry fee, any number of entries can be submitted and the brand new online entry form on www.woodawards.com features a “save your progress” option to make the entry process even easier and more convenient.
The main categories for the Wood Awards 2013 are Commercial & Public Access, Private, Small Project, Structural, Repair & Adaptive Reuse, Bespoke Furniture and Production Made Furniture.
This year, entrants don’t even have to be shortlisted to benefit from entering the Wood Awards. The competition is offering the opportunity to help grow entrant’s social media presence by featuring all entries on the Wood Awards Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest sites. This online exhibition of entries will give entrants the opportunity to increase their profile before the shortlist is even considered.
The Wood Awards is the UK’s premier award scheme recognising, encouraging and promoting outstanding design, craftsmanship and installation in wood and, with permission from the owner, anyone associated with an eligible project can enter. The shortlisted projects will be exhibited at the UK timber event Timber Expo from 24th to 25th September at its new location at the NEC in Birmingham.
For 2013, Canada Wood returns as a lead sponsor, once again joining founding sponsors the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) and the Carpenters’ Company, with major sponsors Wood for Good and TRADA. Other sponsors include American Softwoods and support from BRE, and this year Wood Awards also welcomes the return of the Forestry Commission.
