Scotland’s Finest Woods Awards’ organisers are advising anyone interested in forestry, woods and related projects in Scotland that the usual limit to the number of people attending the ceremony does not apply to this year’s online event.
Normally, the popular awards are held at the Royal Highland Show and numbers have to be limited due to space constraints.
However, the online Zoom event on Friday, September 10th (1200–1300) – which will include special guests, video content and a few surprises – has an increased capacity of up to 500.
“We already have a great range of entrants, funders, supporters, judges and trustees signed up for the event,” said Angela Douglas, Executive Director of Scotland’s Finest Woods. “But we think some might believe there is a limit on attendance numbers, based on the usual in-person events.”
“We want to assure everyone that this is not the case and encourage them to sign up colleagues and anyone interested for what promises to be a great event. As usual, we are turning the spotlight only on the highest quality entries, which truly deserve the accolade of being one of Scotland’s finest woods, forests or related project this year.”
There has been fierce competition in many categories, and the addition of the Climate Change Champion Award to mark the COP26 environmental summit coming to Scotland.
“We hope to welcome a much bigger cross-section of the forestry community than we normally can do in person as well as all those interested in our wonderful woods at the online awards” said Angela.
