Welcome to the 2012 competition
Woodcarving magazine’s competition,
Woodcarver of the Year, has become something
of an event in the woodcarver’s diary, attracting
a diverse range of subject matter and skill base
from readers around the world including the UK,
USA, Australia, South Korea and Iran – to name
but a few!
This competition showcases a selection of the best
carvings from around the globe, from amateur and
professional woodcarvers – this competition is available
to everyone. The competition this year is bigger and better, and will reach even more carvers than ever before. We will be introducing bigger prizes and more
opportunities to win, with special awards presented for
the best use of carving techniques, as well as prizes for
the best carvings per category, and an overall prize for
Woodcarver of the Year.
With main categories covering everything from In the Round, Relief, Animals & Birds and
Caricature and Whimsy, the competition aims to reveal the very best of woodcarving talent
from around the world. There is also a wide range of sub categories for you to enter, which aims to enrich the diversity of entries we receive.
The winners of each category will go forward to the final selection for the prestigious overall
title of ‘Woodcarver of the Year.’ There is a fantastic £2,750 worth of prizes up for grabs from
some of the leading names in the world of woodcarving. The competition will be judged by
leading figures in the woodcarving world. The stakes are higher than ever…and in September
2012, someone will be crowned Woodcarver of the Year. Could it be you?
