Thirty awards were dished out at the 2021 Tasmanian Timber Awards, held at Launceston’s Albert Hall last night – a sure sign that the industry is full of ‘clever people doing great things’, according to the head of the Tasmanian Forests and Forest Products Network.
Convenor, Therese Taylor said the calibre of award entries was very high this year and that in many cases judges chose to award multiple winners, acknowledging the work of both individuals and organisations in some areas.
Additionally, judges in some of the 14 categories opted to award a Highly Commended or Judges’ Commendation, such was the difficulty in choosing a winner.
“The Tasmanian Timber Awards recognises and celebrates excellence and best practice within our industry and acknowledges those who are leaders in their fields,” Ms Taylor said.
“Last night’s event showcased our industry in the best possible way. It truly was a celebration of industry, by industry.”
