What the Awards are About

The Australian Timber Design Awards competition is open to built environment professionals and students who want to showcase their built design and/or building projects in residential and/or public or commercial buildings that feature timber structures or finishes.

The aim of the Awards is to develop a timber design ethos through the encouragement and showcasing of superlative timber design in a variety of applications.

Timber is one product among many that designers can choose from. It is a beautiful, strong and environmentally friendly material. The Awards champion the consideration of the nature of wood and the heritage of timber construction, including the importance of forestry and conservation.


Australian Timber Design Awards and Competition aims to act as a platform; to bring together architects, designers, builders, engineers, students, businesses and the press to encourage truly sustainable timber design.
