As the original and leading competition focused on the material in use, the elite judging panel of independent professional experts and specialists not only judge the entries but visit the shortlisted projects in person, making the Wood Awards as meaningful and rigorous a competition as possible. More details including criteria, details on each of the categories and the online entry form are available on www.woodawards.com.

In order to recognise the high calibre of British building and furniture projects which use local and international wood species and products, the Wood Awards will feature all entries received on its social media, including Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. This online exhibition of all entries gives entrants the opportunity to inspire others and receive exposure before the shortlist is even considered.

The Wood Awards is made possible by the major sponsorship of the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC), the Carpenters’ Company, TRADA and Wood for Good. Other sponsors include American Softwoods, BRE and the Forestry Commission. New from 2014 is the combined sponsorship of the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and the Malaysian Timber Council (MTC) and the return of the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) as a supporter. The Wood Awards Gold Award is sponsored by Arnold Laver.
