AWR's Student Awards 2019 are now officially open for entry with a fantastic $7500 prize pool on offer. Information and entry is at http://www.woodreview.com.au/student-awards 

Here are a few tips for those planning to enter in 2019:


1. Make sure your photos are hires, as a guideline your image files should be 2–5mb in size. If your photos are too lo-res we can’t share them on our Instagram or Facebook pages or print them in the magazine! Check your settings before you shoot.

2. Include full view and detail shots and one or two process shots. One photo needs to show the maker in the frame as well!

3. Check the background is not too distracting. Brightly coloured backgrounds can distract and be reflected in polished surfaces.

4. Lighting and focus are critical. Use a tripod if you can get hold of one, or else take a few shots until you get a good result.


We love sharing your videos on our Facebook, YouTube and Instagram pages. Simply load videos up to Google drive or Dropbox and send a link to editor@woodreview.com.au Supplying videos is optional but encouraged. Remember not to use copyrighted music or social media will mute your video.


We need to know the title of the piece and materials used. Include also some background to the brief and the processes used – 200 words or so will do. When entering add your words to the ‘Entry Description’ field.

Good luck with your entry and if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us. Email editor@woodreview.com.au
