Lincolnshire, IL –  Woodworking Network, North America’s leading source for news, design and technology trends in the wood industry, has launched a call for entries for two long-standing awards programs, Closets Top Shelf Design and Custom Woodworking Design Portfolio.

Closets Top Shelf Design honors designers for their creative closet and home organizational designs. Custom Woodworking Design Portfolio honors custom woodworkers for their outstanding craftsmanship.

Both competitions are highly-regarded in their respective segments and draw entries from around the United States and Canada.

“While we officially consolidated our closet and wood communities editorially last year with the introduction of Woodworking Network,” said editorial director Bill Esler, “We continue to recognize outstanding work and promote the sharing of ideas and inspiration in each of the related fields.  Program winners represent the best-of-the-best in closet design and custom woodworking.”

Interested participants, who must be professional closet designers or professional woodworkers entering client projects, can find official rules and enter online --
