BWF Awards call for entries

19 August 2019

The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) has launched a call for entries for its prestigious BWF Awards, which includes a new category for 2019 – The Rising Star Award.

Now in its 11th year, the event provides an opportunity for the woodworking industry to come together to showcase its most outstanding work from the past year and to celebrate the individuals behind it.

The Rising Star Award has been introduced this year to recognise and champion individuals within the industry who are having a positive impact on their organisation and the wider community.

“The BWF Awards shine a much-deserved spotlight on the UK’s woodworking sector to showcase the incredible things that can be achieved using wood, and the people – whether new to the industry or long-standing – that make it the highly innovative and industrious sector that it is,” said Helen Hewitt, chief executive.

All entries are free and should be submitted by 17:00 on Friday, September 13. Businesses can nominate themselves or be nominated by a client or supplier.

The shortlist will be announced in October, followed by the BWF’s Annual Dinner where the award winners will be announced and celebrated at the Honorable Society of Lincoln’s Inn, London on Friday November 22.
