The Australian Timber Design Awards, currently in its 14th year, is now inviting entries for its 2013 program.

Submitted entries may be considered for five Application Awards, a number of Recognition Awards (formerly the ‘Best Use Of’ Awards), as well as Sustainability, Rising Star, Small Budget Projects and People’s Choice Awards.

The national competition aims to promote and encourage outstanding timber design, and is open to builders, designers, architects, engineers and landscapers involved in the design or building of structures featuring timber. Entries will be judged by a panel comprising an architect, an engineer, an academic and a builder – jury members are yet to be announced.

With entries set to close on 28 June 2013, winners will be announced in September at a presentation ceremony in Melbourne.

Last year’s main prize went to Paul Haar Architect for the Candlebark School Library – an earth-covered library built into the side of a hill in Victoria’s Macedon Ranges.
