The Wood Awards has now launched its 2020 call for entries. 2020 is the 50th anniversary of this prestigious competition, which celebrates excellence in British architecture and product design using wood.

Anyone involved in a UK-based wood project is invited to enter and has until 22nd May to submit their applications. There is no entry fee and entrants may submit more than one project.

Established in 1971, the Wood Awards recognises, encourages and promotes outstanding 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. Entries must be submitted via woodawards.com.

The Wood Awards shortlist will be announced in July and the winners will be announced a ceremony held on 25th November at Carpenters’ Hall in London. The shortlisted projectswill be on display at the ceremony and during the London Design Festival in September.

As a not-for-profit competition, the Wood Awards can only happen with collaborative industry sponsorship. Major Sponsors of the Wood Awards 2020 are American Hardwood Export Council and The Carpenters' Company. Other current sponsors include American Softwoods, Arnold Laver, Timber Trade Federation, and TRADA.
