Uncle Wilco's top tips for Shed of the Year entries

Founder of the Shed of the Year competition Uncle Wilco has come up with some suggestions for impressing the judges and what to consider when submitting your shed creations. So here we go with five of the best...

Stand Out

Think about how your shed could be unique from all other entries. We’ve genuinely seen it all over the past 13 years - you need to consider the competition. Can your shed top a Roman temple or a shed made out of a boat? If the answer’s no, you might need to up your game!

Get Hands On

We love workshop sheds & sheddies who make. Do you create something special in your shed, is it a hub of interesting activity like bee-keeping or a secret boozer? Is it the headquarters of your business or is the exterior totally out of sync with what goes on indoors? We love the weird and wonderful.

Nature’s Haven

We’ve got a whole new category this year - ‘Nature’s Haven’. Inspired by sponsors Cuprinol who develop woodcare products to complement the natural environment. How does your shed attract nature? Is it a haven for wildlife, like last year's winner the ‘Bee-Eco Shed’, or is it a haven hidden within a tree? We’re really excited to see the entries in this category.

Who’s It For?

Is your shed a hub for family & friends, is it the venue for any neighbourhood gathering worth going to, or maybe your tranquil place where you get away from it all? We think all spaces tell a story and one man’s relaxation is another man’s mayhem - the contrast always surprises the judges so make sure to include the shed’s uses in your entry.

Inspire Us

Does your shed inspire others to create their perfect spaces? We love it when we get entries that make us think ‘that’s genius’ or ‘I wish I’d thought of that’. Shout about why your entry is different and what inspired you to come up with it. ---------------------------------------
