We are pleased to confirm that we will be announcing this year’s shortlist to coincide with London Design Festival, 12-20th September.
The trade shows we usually exhibit at have been postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19. Instead, we will be launching a virtual platform to celebrate the shortlist during the festival.
Unfortunately, we have decided to postpone this year’s Student Designer category. Many students have been unable to complete their projects and we would like to give everyone a fair chance. All 2020 student entries will roll over to next year.
One great virtue about the Wood Awards is that we visit all the shortlisted projects in person. This ensures that the competition is as rigorous as possible. We will still visit every project but will adapt the judging process to ensure we meet social distancing guidelines.
If your project is shortlisted you will be notified by 14th August. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to sharing our shortlist with you soon!
