NOW IN their 18th year, the Aus­tralian Tim­ber De­sign Awards are dis­tin­guished by a proud her­itage of in­no­va­tion and achieve­ment. The awards pro­mote and en­cour­age out­stand­ing tim­ber de­sign.

The com­pe­ti­tion has now opened with sub­mis­sions be­ing taken un­til 9 June. On 1 Au­gust the Peo­ple’s Choice Awards vot­ing opens and all win­ners will be an­nounced at a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion night on 30 Septem­ber.

These awards are open to builders, de­sign­ers, ar­chi­tects, en­gi­neers and land­scap­ers: to any­one in­volved in the de­sign or build­ing of struc­tures that fea­ture tim­ber. A Ris­ing Star Award is avail­able to stu­dents and en­trants aged 35 or un­der.

Win­ning an ac­co­lade in the Aus­tralian Tim­ber De­sign Awards, which is an in­de­pen­dent and ex­pert ap­praisal for tim­ber de­sign, con­trib­utes to per­sonal, busi­ness rep­u­ta­tion and brand im­age. Tak­ing part in the Aus­tralian Tim­ber De­sign Awards and com­pe­ti­tion pro­vides valu­able feed­back and ex­pe­ri­ence. Award win­ners can proudly dis­play their ex­clu­sive award tro­phies and de­sign ex­cel­lence cer­tifi­cates which grants them pres­tige and ex­pert sta­tus.

In or­der to pro­vide for a good and solid foun­da­tion for the awards, in ad­di­tion to fair eval­u­a­tion and judg­ing by sound method­ol­ogy, the aim is to have a strong and ex­pert de­sign com­pe­ti­tion jury that pro­vides their in­valu­able knowl­edge base and in­sight to eval­u­ate the sub­mit­ted en­tries, cre­at­ing ben­e­fit and value for par­tic­i­pants by trans­fer­ring their in­sights and ideas in form of votes, feed­backs and sug­ges­tions. Judges are not cho­sen un­til af­ter the sub­mis­sion com­ple­tion date to avoid con­flict of in­ter­est is­sues.

The Grand-Prix (over­all), Cat­e­gory Win­ners are then se­lected by our panel of judges and the win­ners pub­licly an­nounced at a spe­cial Pre­sen­ta­tion Night.

Sep­a­rate in­dus­try pan­els, which may in­clude spon­sors, will as­sist in the se­lect of win­ners for the Prod­uct Recog­ni­tion Awards. Planet Ark’s Make it Wood cam­paign will be re­spon­si­ble for the Sus­tain­abil­ity Award ques­tion­naire as well as for the judg­ing of this cat­e­gory. The gen­eral pub­lic will choose the win­ner of the Peo­ple’s Choice Award via an on­line poll.
