Each application must also include at least six high-resolution color prints of the project, an architect/designer’s statement, and a woodworker’s statement.
Projects will be recognized for their featured architectural woodwork. The project that is granted the Bernard B. Barber Jr. Award for Excellence will receive a plaque and be promoted on the Woodwork Institute website and social media platforms. Award-winning entries become the property of the Woodwork Institute for unrestricted use. The Woodwork Institute assumes no responsibility for loss of or damage to materials submitted.
