The submission period runs through June 14. The competition is open to all woodworkers, both amateur and professional.

Note that entries will not display until they have been moved into the "approved" queue by the editors.

All entries must have been built in the last five years and may not have been featured in any other mass-market woodworking publications or associated web sites. No entry fee is required to submit projects for consideration. Costs for preparing and submitting the entry are the responsibility of the entrant.

Up to five (5) projects (one per category) may be entered by one entrant. Each project entry requires a separate completed entry form.

Submit up to three digital photos of each project, and upload your “beauty” shot as the first photo. The other two photos will not display here; they are for the judges only (note that your address, phone number and email are also for judges' eyes only – those will not be made public). Note that the size limit for each attached photo is 1MB. (Exceeding this limit may cause the form to lock up – if that happens simply refresh the page.) 

For best results, photograph your projects against a neutral background (a light-colored sheet or a plain, painted wall, for example) with adequate lighting. While furniture pieces may be “propped” appropriately, do not clutter the shot – the goal is to show off your work in its best light. In addition to overall shots, you may wish to provide a detail shot of areas that best represent your woodworking skill and design.
