Shed of the Year 2011 Competition
I've just finished uploading a couple of new pictures (with the help of Uncle Wilco, organizer of the competition). Some of you may remember I was a category winner in 2009, and was therefore automatically entered in to last year's competition, but being a little (okay, a lot) switched off, I didn't realize this until voting had almost ended and pretty much missed most of the fun involved in taking part.
This year I'm a little more on the ball (thanks to a reminder email...) and as The Plotting Shed aka Grumpy's Palace has had a bit of a makeover since 2009 and the inside of the shed has seen a few changes, notably the arrival of my tatty, but much beloved, pink Lloyd Loom chair, I thought I'd update the photos.
So, although the public voting doesn't start until 17th May (don't worry, I'll remind you closer to the time) I thought I'd add a link to the site where you can see a few more pictures.
The judges include Sarah Beeny, Simon Mayo, Gordon Thorburn, with the winner receiving £1,000 and various other prizes. If you have a shed you may also want to enter one of the categories for this competition. I've entered mine in the Garden Office Category, however there are others, including Eco Shed, Cabin/Summerhouse, Tardis, Pub Shed, Workshop/Studio, Normal Shed, etc. The link to enter is here. You can find out more by following Shedblog.co.uk or following @unclewilco on Twitter.
