NZ Master Joiner Awards

NZ Master Joiner Awards

The 2016 winning entries in the annual NZ Master Joiner Awards have been announced this evening at the NZ Master Joiner Awards Dinner at the Millennium Hotel in Queenstown.

The aim of the Awards is to promote excellence in joinery design and craftsmanship, to encourage the use of sustainable timbers, and to showcase the finest work from the industry. These are the largest industry awards of their kind in New Zealand.

Judging criteria includes design, workmanship, innovative use of materials, complexity of project, and visual appeal.

Kitchen design is judged on the WOW factor, cutting edge design, practicality, and creative use of materials and colour.

The judges commented:
“There has been high interest and a record number of entries again this year in the Master Joiner Awards, and we congratulate all contestants on their efforts. This competition has shown that winners can come from all sized projects, from those with an endless supply of money to those of very modest means. It is heartening to see the pride in our trade and the skills we can offer our clients.”
