Trans-tasman Timber Design Awards announcement

Entries will be drawn from the finalists in the recent Australian and New Zealand national timber design awards, both of which have taken place in the last month. “This will be the first year such Trans-Tasman awards have been made and we intend it to be the first of many,” says Geoff Henley program manager of NZ Wood.
Judging for the awards by an Australia/New Zealand panel will take place in the next few weeks with the winners being announced just before Christmas. “It’s not our intention to have a Trans-Tasman Awards ceremony this year, but we are tracking towards an international timber conference that will be held in 2012 at which time all winners between now and then will be given recognition”, says Andrew Dunn, chief executive, Timber Development Association NSW.
