Please follow these steps to submit your entries:
- Submit all project information in your own 8½” x 11” binder with plastic sleeves. We recommend a portfolio binder with attached plastic sleeves inside. A separate binder is required for each entry.
One set of four project information sheets must be included in each entry as follows:
Form 1: Payment Form in the first plastic sleeve in the binder. You may list all of your entries and fees on Form 1 and submit it only once.
Form 2: Information Sheet back-to-back with Form 1.
Form 3: Project Description
Form 4: Project Data back to back in the second plastic sleeve.
Include floor plan, section and elevation sketches to illustrate the design, and a site plan showing the project and surrounding area. Sketches should be reduced to fit flat into plastic sleeves. Selected drawing details may be included at your discretion but are not mandatory. In order to ensure anonymity - your firm name should not appear on the drawings.
Include enough photos of exteriors and interiors to illustrate the project and its design features, and to give the jury a good appreciation of your submission. Photos should be high quality prints. Slides may be included as supplemental material, not as the main photo record of the submission. Remodeled projects should include at least one “before” photo.
Judges find it helpful to review entries that are clearly and professionally presented. It is in the interest of the participant to prepare a well-organized submission.
Please include a CD or DVD that includes all of the above in electronic format. For republication purposes, supplied photos must be a minimum of 300 dpi, and as large as possible (8x10 min.); plans, drawings and illustrations should be in vector format wherever possible.
- All projects completed in the period between January 1, 2009 and Sept 15, 2013 are eligible for entry [except previous winning projects of The Wood Design Awards].
- Form 2 must be signed by a firm representative giving Wood Design & Building magazine unrestricted use of all material submitted for the award-winning entries for the purpose of publicizing the Program and the winning entries in the magazines, web site and Awards Book. Permission from owners and photographers is the responsibility of the entrants and must be obtained before entering.
- Submissions will be returned only if $20 per entry is provided for shipping, or if a FedEx or UPS billing number is included with your entry [please do not send filled-in courier slips].
