Make It Wood Awards

This year we have three categories:

Category 1: Renovation - this includes photos of do-it-yourself or renovation projects that have used wood for example floorboards, kitchen or bathroom renovations or window frame replacements. 

Category 2: Structures - this may include photos of houses or buildings, or even piers, wharves or fencing

Category 3: Miscellaneous - for example: furniture, objects made from wood, toys etc.

The above three categories will be judged by Planet Ark once the competition has closed.  The winning photo entry for each category will receive an iPad with a wooden cover.

People's Choice Award

All entries will feature on the Make It Wood Facebook page where people can vote for their favourite photo. Planet Ark will take the three most popular photos of all the categories and decide which is the best to win the People's Choice Award. The winner will receive an iPad with a wooden cover.


The entries will be judged based on the quality, beauty and uniqueness of the photo. To enter a photo must be:

  • Taken in Australia,
  • Of a building, infrastructure and household or decorative item made from wood, (although photos of trees and forests are beautiful they are not eligible for this competition),
  • Taken by the contestant and
  • Submitted by Friday 19 April 2013, midnight AEST.

There is no limit on the number of different photos that one person may enter.
