Oakwood Veneer announced its first “Tricks of the Trade” video contest with a grand prize of $2,500 to spend at Oakwood, along with two $500 runner-up and 10 $50 honorable mention awards.
“In our customer base, we count some of the world's foremost experts in wood veneer installation, as well as some novices who happen to really know their stuff as well,” Oakwood president Peter Rodgers said in a statement. “With new tricks, tips and techniques being discovered on a regular basis, it made perfect sense to gather up this knowledge from the community by way of a video submission contest.”
Oakwood plans to display all award-winning and other notable video submissions on its website and Youtube channel.
Entrants are limited to three video submissions each, with all videos a maximum of two minutes in length. Videos need not be professionally produced, but do need enough visual and audio clarity to adequately teach the presented technique. Topics must be in relation to veneer or edgebanding installation or usage, and there is no fee for entrants. Veneer and other featured supplies do not need to be sourced from Oakwood. Only one winner per person/company is allowed.
The deadline for entry is August 19. Winners will be announced Sept. 12.
