The 88 participating panels of the 3rd Egurtek Awards will be on display. Including the 4 winners:
Exhibition of Basque products made out of wood.
The award ceremony will be held on Thursday, 20th October at 11.30am in the Luxua Hall at the BEC (Level 3) Expo Area.
EGURTEK, International Forum on Architecture and Construction in Wood, which will be held at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre on 20th and 21st October, will host the award ceremony for the Competition fotoPARQUET, organised by the National Association of Parquet Manufacturers (ANFP).
The award ceremony will be held on Thursday, 20th October at 11.30am in the Luxua Hall at the BEC (Level 3 of the Congress Centre at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre, alongside the EGURTEK Expo Area).
Almudena García will preside over the jury and the award ceremony in representation of the National Association of Parquet Manufacturers, accompanied by the rest of the members of the competition jury:
The best photo will be awarded a prize of 350 Euros. There will also be a prize of 200 Euros for the runner-up.
This year, the National Association of Parquet Manufacturers (ANFP) has organised a photography competition to promote, exhibit and defend authentic wooden floors.
fotoPARQUET aims to ensure that consumers can DISTINGUISH and VALUE authentic wooden flooring and hence counter the influence of wood imitation ceramic, vinyl or synthetic floors in the market.
fotoPARQUET is the continuation of the “Suelos de Película” (Film Floors) video competition which was successfully held by the National Association of Parquet Manufacturers two years ago in conjunction with the European Federation of the Parquet Industry (FEP).
ANFP has received over two hundred photos, of which it has made a pre-selection of fifty images and the jury will select the best two from these.
“The aim of the competition is to remind consumers that a wooden floor at home, at work or in public buildings is the most ecological, healthy, profitable and lasting option”, points out the project coordinator, Angela Herranz.
“Compared with wood imitation flooring that systematically confuses consumers, we want to reach out to everybody and let them know that only AUTHENTIC WOOD is WOOD. Everything else is another thing”, concludes Javier Hervás, President of the National Association of Parquet Manufacturers (ANFP).
Egurtek fulfils its three-fold objective of raising awareness, establishing and promoting businesses.
Over the two-day period, experts and leading companies of the timber industry shared their knowledge, experiences and passions of a constantly innovating environment. To raise awareness of the need for a material that is sustainable and beneficial to the environmental balance, and to inform the technicians of its potential for application in construction and restoration jobs in order to boost trade were the Forum’s main objectives. More than 1,000 professionals participated in EGURTEK, now in its fifth year, which incorporated new spaces for learning and for contact between industry players.
The awards were organised with the co-operation of the Basque-Navarre College of Architects (COAVN) and Habic Cluster. The winners were:
In 2014, technical sessions dealing with the following matters were held at the Luxua Hall.
In addition to the aforementioned sessions, an important Basque Country-Canada collaboration workshop was held, where key aspects for both lands were discussed. The workshop was presided by the Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Policy of the Basque Government, Bittor Oroz and the Ambassador of Canada to Spain, Jon Allen.
In the 5 trade shows it has held, Egurtek has welcomed 56 international speakers of renowned prestige.
In a very educational and visual way, the Egurtek speaker explains in the conference the woodwork that has carried out, its features and the difficulty in executing it.
