The British Woodworking Federation is calling for entries for the BWF Awards.

Chief Executive Helen Hewitt said: “After what has been such a challenging time for so many of us, this is an important opportunity to unite once again as a sector and look forward to some well-deserved celebrations and socialising, which we have all missed so much over the last 16 months.

“I cannot think of a better platform to remind ourselves of the fantastic work and incredible people that push the boundaries of woodworking and joinery, as well as look to the future by recognising the stars and leaders of tomorrow.”

Entries close at 17:00 on Friday, 10 September. Those shortlisted will receive a complimentary ticket to the BWF Awards Dinner on 26 November, held at the Kimpton Fitzroy London Hotel.

Businesses can nominate themselves or be nominated by a client or supplier. The categories for this year’s Awards, which are free to enter, are: Woodworking Project of the Year Award, Sponsored by W Exhibition & The FIT Show; Product Design in Wood Award, Sponsored by Teknos;

Woodworking Apprentice of the Year Award, Sponsored by CITB; Rising Star Award, Sponsored by Dixon International Group; Health & Safety Hero Award, Sponsored by Arnold Laver, and Process Efficiency Award, Sponsored by PIB Insurance Brokers.
