AWARDS JURY PANEL

Each year the judging panel comprises abroad representation across professions to ensure that winners are chosen which excel in all aspects of design.

 

As in any good design award, every design jury member follows a code of conduct or as we require sign a jury agreement or he/she shall be excluded from taking part in the competition. In addition, to avoid conflicts of interest, the judges may not be employees of the participating companies.

18TH AUSTRALIAN TIMBER DESIGN AWARDS

Registrations for Entry into Competition - CLOSED

Jury Members

In order to provide for a good and solid foundation for the timber design awards, in addition to fair evaluation and judging by an sound methodology, we aim is to have a strong and expert design competition jury which 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 has passed 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 event usually set in the later months of each year. 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.

Judging Process

All participating Entries will be judged on outstanding timber use, appearance, workmanship, structure and innovation. Judges are looking, in particular, for context-suitable use of timber. Well-considered design and construction with timber will distinguish an entry. With such a broad range of categories on offer, there is scope for recognition of a variety of applications. Each entry category is judged independently. This is an important feature of the Australian Timber Design Awards: a winning project may excel in a range of distinct areas.

It is important for entries to be comprehensive but concise – judges will refer to written statements, drawings, and detailed photographs, where appropriate, in order to distinguish a winner (see entry requirements). As such, entrants must consider whether their project is suitable for the categories into which it is entered. Entries should display examples of outstanding design in the relevant areas and include a description of the use of timber in each project.
