Shed of the Year finalists announced

The finalists in this year's Cuprinol Shed of the Year have been announced as the judges have whittled down the entries from hundreds to just three finalists per category - these will go head-to-shed in a bid to win the coveted title. This year a new category has been added with entrants being invited to show off their 'Nature’s Haven' with designs inspired by nature and the other categories are Unexpected, Cabin/Summerhouse, Workshop and Studio, Pub and Entertainment, Budget and Unique.

The two that particularly caught the Shedworking staff's eye were Mary Price's blue artist’s workshop in Bristol (above and here if you want to vote) and Stuart Campbell's The Ark (top and here if you want to vote for it) where he makes musical instruments and small furniture, but there are plenty more examples including for those who like a bit of 'thats not a shed' controversy, a live-in shed/lorry in Hampshire, a Shakespeare themed boat-come-shed, and a playhouse that required planning permission

A winner from each category will be decided by a public vote, then an overall winner will be crowned by a panel of shed experts with a giant golden crown for the winning shed. The best shed will receive £1,000, a plaque, and £100 of Cuprinol products.

Head judge and founder of the competition, Andrew Wilcox, said: “We’ve been absolutely blown away by the incredible, imaginative and innovative sheds entered into this year’s competition. Every year there are more and more outstanding entries that take us by surprise. The creativity and imagination of all entrants never fail to amaze the judges. This year’s bunch are second to none. We’ve been really impressed by the aesthetics of the sheds - especially those that entered the brand new Nature’s Haven category with entrants really demonstrating how important it is to welcome nature into our lives and our gardens.”

Public voting is now underway for the 13th annual competition and will close on 29 August. You can cast your vote at ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
