2020 Calendar & Photography Competition

Thursday, April 25, 2019

To showcase the beautiful, versatile and sustainable material that timber is, we are launching a photographic competition with the aim of producing a desk calendar featuring decking and cladding projects from our wonderful TDCA members.

We’ll choose 12 winning images to feature across the calendar (with company and project details included) with the overall winning entry receiving a photo-shoot session at a project of their choice.

 

Architect Peter Wilson – MD of Timber Design Initiatives, will judge the competition. Peter’s experience includes directorship of the Wood Studio, a timber research centre within Edinburgh Napier University's Institute for Sustainable Construction. He regularly presents at international conferences and seminars and writes extensively for architecture, construction and timber trade publications. 

We aim to promote the calendar to architects and specifiers through our social media channels and website, with all profits going to Cancer Research UK.
