2020 Photo Challenge

Enter the Norwood Photo Challenge to Win!

Every year, Norwood awards thousands of dollars in prizes to Norwood sawmill owners who submit entries to Norwood’s Annual Photo & Video Challenge which takes place each fall. Read the full contest rules here.

Introduced in 2018 for our 10th anniversary, was a "Share your Norwood Adventure" category with higher value prizes. Due to the high quality of submissions in this category, we will be keeping this category as a mainstay going forward. Norwood portable sawmill owners are invited to send in photos of projects they’ve built with their Norwood equipment, as well as photos and videos of their Norwood sawmills in action, with a written story about their proudest accomplishment achieved with their Norwood sawmill.

We Love to See Your Photos

Norwood sawmill owners are the most hard-working, talented, creative and resourceful group of people around.

To recognize their achievements and passion for wood, we launched the annual Norwood Photo & Video Challenge in 2008. Divided into different categories, the top three photos and videos in each class earn their Norwood owners valuable Norwood credit – credit that can be redeemed toward future purchases of any Norwood portable sawmill or forestry equipment direct from Norwood.

Please take a minute to look at the entries submitted in past contests, including the winning photos. They are an inspiring tribute to the vision, skill, craftsmanship, passion and dedication of Norwood owners.

It’s a real privilege and truly humbling to know that Norwood portable sawmills and forestry equipment play a part in the magic that Norwood owners makes with wood.
