TTJ Awards Categories

The TTJ Awards feature categories that are voted for by qualifying voters, or judged by independent panels.

Five categories are voted for by qualifying voters including key personnel who have the authority to purchase timber. The list of voters is compiled from a number of sources, including TTJ subscribers, appropriate entries in the TTJ Address Book & Buyer’s Guide, and members of the British Woodworking Federation.

DUO Marketing Services will contact companies qualifying to vote over the next few weeks – either by mail or telephone.

The categories are:

Softwood Trader of the Year

Hardwood Trader of the Year

Panels Trader of the Year

Plywood Trader of the Year

Small Timber Business of the Year

The Timber Trader of the Year Award goes to the company receiving the most votes overall

The six TTJ Awards judged by independent panels are:

Excellence in Marketing
This award is open to any company or advertising agency that has undertaken a campaign promoting a timber or related product or service and will be judged on persuasiveness, effectiveness and style.

Environmental Achievement

This award is open to any company in the timber and associated industries that can demonstrate some form of improvement in environmental performance, from certification to the development of products, processes or services with particular environmental benefit.

Achievement in Engineered Timber
This award is open to both individual products that take engineered wood to a new technical level and open up new market opportunities, and to particularly interesting, technically demanding or ground-breaking applications in joinery, manufacturing or construction.

Career Development (under-25 and over-25)
This award recognises the skills development of individual employees within the timber industry and is split into two categories – entrants to the industry and more senior staff who have undertaken continuing professional development.

Website of the Year
This category is open to timber companies and organisations with an online presence and will be judged on design, content, user friendliness, commercial effectiveness and use of technology.

Timber Innovation
This category recognises the development of a new product or system that is fully or partially made using timber materials, or assists with timber based building materials (for example, paints, coatings, adhesives, fixings, etc)
