We’re very excited to announce that the ever-popular Shed Series is back for 2018, thanks to our partners at Topline! The Shed Series invites sheds from across Ireland to create a work of art – in any medium or material – that expresses what your shed means to its members and its community.
Previous entrants will know just how enjoyable this competition can be. It’s a terrific showcase for your members’ skills and creative flair – an opportunity to work together and craft something meaningful. This year, Topline are adding a fun twist – a box of materials which will be sent to all entrants, to incorporate into their entry as they see fit.
Finalists will have the opportunity to meet other sheds from across Ireland at the awards event, and the winning sheds will be bringing home some fabulous prizes, courtesy of Topline:
1st Prize: €2,000 cash
2nd Prize: €1,000 cash
People’s Choice Award (Facebook vote): €500 cash for the winner.
In addition, all shortlisted entries will receive a €50 Topline Voucher.
