The Shed of the Year 2022 shortlist has been revealed – vote for your favourite

The 2022 Cuprinol Shed of the Year shortlist has been revealed, and voting for the finalists is now open.

The annual competition showcases some of the country’s most unique outbuildings, becoming a cult event over the last 16 years.

Last year’s winner was a colourful 1970s-style cocktail bar designed by Danielle Zarb-Cousin, with this round of entries rising to the challenge of besting her creation.

Among the 260 hopefuls who’ve put their hats in the ring are both amateur and veteran shed enthusiasts. Their entries include everything from inviting home pubs to nature escapes to practical yet beautiful workshops.

With seven categories in total (Budget, Cabin/Summerhouse, Lockdown, Nature’s Haven, Pub/Entertainment, Unexpected/Unique, and Workshop/Studio) Cuprinol has narrowed down the best three from each.

Fans can vote for their favourites, with the winner in each category taking home £1,000 in prize money, a plaque, and £100-worth of Cuprinol products.

Head judge and founder of the competition, Andrew Wilcox, comments: ‘We’ve seen some first-of-their-kind designs, making it nearly impossible to whittle down to just three from each category.

‘One great thing that has come from successive lockdowns is how much it has inspired people’s creativity, and it’s great that this has been channelled into the design of their own little escapes.’

Here’s the full shortlist, so you can vote for the rightful winner of this prestigious title.
