Time running out to enter Shed of the Year 2020

There's only just over a fortnight to get your entries in for this year's Cuprinol Shed of the Year competition. Here's a flavour of the entries so far, the Mid Century Modshed owned by Stephanie Antrobus from Oldham, who created it as a refuge from the hurly burly of general life. Inspired by the mid-century modern design movement, it features a retro 1970s music centre, while all furniture and interior decor has been sourced from charity/antique shops and eBay. Pride of place goes to Stephanie’s collection of uranium glassware that gives off a green glow under light. 

As the cherished competition enters its 16th year, there is still time to enter one of seven categories which include the new lockdown category. Entries for this year’s competition close on April 19. 

“The entries for this year’s Cuprinol Shed Of The Year really exemplify the very best of British creativity and eccentricity," says competition founder and organiser, Uncle Wilco, "from creating fantasy lands, to cool refuges from modern life and a musical haven in the back garden.” 

Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director at Cuprinol, adds: “Recent years have been challenging for many of us, which is why it is so delightful to see such a flowering of creativity with this year’s competition. There’s still time to showcase your efforts, so don’t delay, enter now!” 

A public vote will crown the winner from each of the seven categories before a judging panel will name the overall Cuprinol Shed Of The Year 2022. Winners will be announced in August, with the champion awarded £1,000 prize money and £100 worth of Cuprinol products. Entries can be submitted at
