The Atlantic Wood Design Awards Event recognizes excellence in wood construction and design, and honour the people and organizations that showcase and promote the use of wood in the Atlantic region of Canada. A jury of experts will review the nominations and choose the winners based on several factors including: Creativity; distinctive use of wood materials (with emphasis on regionally produced materials); ability to satisfy client and site requirements; innovation and overall aesthetics.
The 2018 Atlantic Wood Design Awards Event will be held in Halifax on December 5, 2018, with submission deadline of September 30, 2018.
According to the Atlantic WoodWORKS! website, competition winners receive the following:
- A commemorative award
- Winning projects will be published in a hard cover North American Wood Design Awards book
- Extensive media exposure
There is no cost associated with a submission or nomination. You may submit each project in up to Three (3) categories. There is no limit to the number of projects you can submit. Pictures need only to be submitted once. If multiple firms/companies are involved in the submission, it will be at the discretion of the jury as to which firm will be awarded the wooden sail. Submissions for the 2018 Atlantic Wood Design Awards will be accepted for projects completed since 2010.
