The shortlist for the UK's best garden shed of 2020 is here

Award season might seem like a distant memory considering the global pandemic we’ve had since then, but these are the gongs you should all have been waiting for – the 2020 Cuprinol Shed of the Year.

Yes, it might not sound as glam as the Oscars but these awards show off some of the most impressive summer houses, outdoor stores and home bars you’ve ever seen.

For these people, the shed is somewhere more than just a place to store the deckchairs.

There are nine categories, including two new ones – the Lockdown Repurpose and Lockdown New-build.

Judges whittled down hundreds of entries to compile this year’s shortlist of 27 sheds.

The winner from each will be decided by public vote, then an overall winner will be crowned by a panel of shed experts with a giant golden crown for the winning shed.

The overall winner will also receive £1,000, a plaque and £100 of Cuprinol products.

Public voting is now underway will close on Sunday 9 August.

Head Judge and founder of the competition Andrew Wilcox said: ‘More than ever, the events of recent months have shown us what a valuable role sheds can play in our lives.

‘They are spaces where we can help our NHS heroes, educate our children and care for our family.

‘They highlight all that is great about Britain – our ingenuity, our eccentricity and our determination to help others.’

Kirsty Woodbine, Marketing Manager for Cuprinol, said: ‘We’ve been astonished by the quality of entries to this year’s competition.

‘All our entrants have responded with real creativity and imagination, but more than that the introduction of this year’s new lockdown categories has shown a real outpouring of kindness and community spirit. 

‘This year more than ever Cuprinol Shed of the Year has served as a platform for those going above and beyond for each other.’
