WOOD AWARDS 2019 CALL FOR ENTRIES LAUNCHED
We are proud to sponsor The Wood Awards again this year!
The Wood Awards: Excellence in British Architecture and Product Design has launched its 2019 call for entries. Are you involved in a UK-based wood project? You’re invited to enter the Wood Awards. It is free to enter and you can submit more than one project.
Closing date is 24th May.
Established in 1971, the Wood Awards recognises, encourages and promotes outstanding wood design, craftsmanship and installation throughout the UK. The Wood Awards’ elite independent judging panel not only judges all submitted entries but also visits the shortlisted projects in person, making the Wood Awards a uniquely rigorous competition.
With permission from the owner, anyone associated with a building or product completed in the last two years, can enter. Buildings must be located within the UK whilst furniture and other products must have been either designed or manufactured in the UK. Fitted furniture must be in the UK. There are no restrictions on the size or budget of a project.
The Furniture & Product competition will be split into Bespoke, Production Made and Student Designer. Student Designer is open to anyone currently in education or who has left education in the past 12 months. Within the Student category there are two cash prizes (£1,000 for the Winner and £500 for the People’s Choice).
The 2019 buildings categories will be confirmed later this year. These are likely to be Commercial & Leisure, Education & Public Sector, Interiors, Private and Small Project. Other awards, such as Structural and Existing Building awards, can be given at the judges’ discretion.
The Wood Awards shortlist will be announced in July. The winners will be announced at the Wood Awards ceremony on 19th November 2019 at Carpenters’ Hall, London. The shortlisted projects will be on display during the ceremony and at the London Design Festival in September.
