About Wood Awards

Seventeen structures and nine product designs have been nominated for the Wood Awards 2020. The independent judging panel visits all the shortlisted projects in person, making this a uniquely rigorous competition.

Established in 1971, the Wood Awards is the UK’s premier competition for excellence in architecture and product design in wood. The competition is free to enter and aims to encourage and promote outstanding timber design, craftsmanship and installation. The Awards are split into two main categories: Buildings and Furniture & Product.
