Young Woodworking Professionals Contest
The Young Woodworking Professionals competition recognizes outstanding projects and the young wood pros that create them. And, it's returning in 2022!
Beginning Monday, February 8, simply post one picture of your woodworking project along with a brief description on Twitter, Instagram, or at Woodworking Network's Facebook page, using #YoungWoodPro. When posting on Twitter or Instagram, be sure to mention @WoodworkingBiz (Twitter) or @WoodworkingNetwork (Instagram) to ensure entry is counted. Alternatively, you can enter directly with this form.
Please limit your entry to 1 per person. You must be between the ages of 18-35, (by year's end 2022) and be a professional woodworker. Judging of your project is based on the photo you post, so make sure it's a good photo! 
Public voting
Entrance to the competition will close on March 18. We will then publish a photo album to our Facebook page containing every entry. Public voting will then take place from March 21 - 25. Voting is based on the number of 'likes' each entry receives. 1 like = 1 vote.
Ten finalists will be determined based on the number of votes, with our team of judges selecting the overall winner.
Due to the wide range of the submitted projects and their applications (i.e., functional, decorative - furniture, boat, artwork, etc.), judging consideration will be given to:
  • overall look/presentation of the project
  • the complexity of construction and design

The 2022 Young Woodworking Professionals contest winner will receive a $500 monetary award and will be featured on and in an upcoming issue of FDMC magazine.
