WoodSolutions invites you to enter your wood design in Dangerous Designs, an online design competition held over a year with the best designs rewarded every two months.

Sponsored by WoodSolutions and supported by professional associations, industry bodies, universities and tertiary institutions, Dangerous Designs accepts design submissions in two categories – Student and Open.

Open to anyone in Australia, the Student category is for full-time or part-time students at university, TAFE, college or school, while the Open category is for everyone else.


The best submission in each of the categories will be awarded a $500 prize at the end of every second month. The winning bi-monthly entries submitted up to 30 September 2017 will be considered for the Annual Prize of $10,000 with the winner selected by a judging panel.

Entries will be rated on the following criteria: Originality; Use of wood and wood products; Relevance (usefulness and/or desirability, value and commercial potential); Design (elegance, craft of design); and Sustainability (recyclability, carbon footprint, energy replacement etc.).

Entry is free and any number of entries can be submitted by an individual. In addition to the cash prizes and a trip to the Festival of Dangerous Ideas, there will be opportunities for commercialisation of designs.
