Roll Up! The 2017 Intergrain Timber Vision Awards Entries Are Now Open

Roll Up! The 2017 Intergrain Timber Vision Awards Entries Are Now Open

Now in its eighth consecutive year, the Intergrain Timber Vision Awards is open for entries, looking for the best and most creative uses of timber over the last 12 months.

Architects, landscape architects, specifiers and design professionals across Australia and New Zealand are invited to enter any residential, commercial or landscape projects in the awards, which are looking for those special projects that demonstrate distinctive and visionary use of that most versatile of materials, timber.

Following a record number of entries in last year’s competition, Intergrain Senior Brand Manager, Sonia Tousis is expecting 2017 to the biggest year yet for the awards, “It’s an exciting time for the industry. Timber continues to be a preferred material for design professionals with an ever-evolving breadth of solid, modified and engineered timber options. The change to the building code in Australia represents a new era for timber in construction, so it will be fascinating to see how this starts to manifest with respect to design innovation”

This year’s judging panel will again be made up of esteemed industry professionals who will award winners across 5 categories – Residential Interior, Residential Exterior, Commercial Interior, Commercial Exterior and Landscape. Each category winner will receive $2,000 cash plus up to 100L of Intergrain Timber Finishes.

For project entries finished in Intergrain Timber Finishes, the most outstanding entry will be awarded the ultimate prize of a $15,000 Travel Bursary.

Entries are now open and close on Sunday 9th July. A shortlist will be announced with winners awarded at the Intergrain Timber Vision Awards Breakfast to be held in Melbourne in September.
