The Canadian Wood Council (CWC) is now accepting applications for the 2024 Wood Design and Building Awards. The competition is open to North American and international projects completed between Jan. 1, 2021, and May 31, 2024, and is calling for entries that showcase the use of wood products in any, or several, of their many forms and applications.

The jury will assess the entries based on their creativity, appropriate use of wood materials, satisfaction of clients’ requirements, meeting specific building and site requirements, and innovative design.

The winning projects will receive a custom wood trophy recognizing the achievement, and will be featured in a press release and on social media. A feature profile will also be created on the Wood Innovation Network, and winners will be showcased in a video available on the WoodWorks website.

To enter the competition, the projects must be completed between Jan. 1, 2021, and May 31, 2024 (excluding previous winning projects of the Wood Design & Building Awards).
