The Cuprinol Shed Of The Year contest is backwards for 2021, observing the good British drop in all of its forms – from little to large, contemporary to traditional, and all in between.

Whether it is an office area, back garden pub and also a calm refuge from the external world, put in your shed structure to the yearly contest for the opportunity to win a £1,000 decoration and £100 value of Cuprinol products.

‘Our garden sheds are far more than Simply a place to put our resources – They’re a Excellent creative outlet for a person’s unique artistic vision,’ states Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director in Cuprinol. ‘Over years, sheds have become an extension of the house and among the main rooms in the home.

‘And last year we’ve seen individuals transcend the bounds of what we believe a drop could function as working on these was a much-needed fire job in a period of uncertainty and uncertainty.’

As lockdown ignited a DIY boom, last year’s entrances saw a increase in multifunctional fall spaces, such as offices, garden bars, colleges and PPE paths.

Daniel Holloway won this coveted Cuprinol Shed of the Year 2020 name after wowing judges with his nature-inspired refuge, Bedouin Tree-Shed, that was constructed around two tree trunks in his backyard.

Also last year, Ashley Bates took home the contest’s first ever Special Commendation for The Shed School, he put up throughout lockdown to help instruct children as colleges shut.

‘Looking back, this time my drop was only a drop, it wasn’t anything dramatic, it had been full of crap,’ states Ashley. ‘A year after we’ve got this massive following of kids throughout the world that song within these classes and it’s running like a business now, it’s running like a tutor service for people who are still at home and still needing that support.’

Ashley now runs monthly mental health classes to help children suffering with anxiety and parents who need a little extra support.

‘Without Shed of the Year we wouldn’t have gone into that, we would have closed the shed door and locked up after the first lockdown, but it is given us that impetus to keep it going,’ he adds.
