Win with Winter WoodWin with Wood


Protek’s new competition Win with Winter Wood is open up until Friday 31st March 2017. You can send in your photos whenever you like and they will be stored until the competition closes and judging commences. Winners and runners up will be informed during April with official results and photos being released in our newsletter and published on the website.


In a change from our normal Win with Wood competition, entries will be judged as a photography competition. We are looking for outstanding images to add to our portfolio of wood treated with Protek but in winter. We would like to see sheds covered in snow, birds visiting tables, horses content in their stables.  The competition is to demonstrate the versatility of timber products and how Protek offers them year round protection and colour.


For your chance to win, just send us pictures of your winter wood. Entries can be of anything treated with Protek, old or new, children and animals are welcome additions!


First prize will receive a luxury hamper of local produce worth £125 Second place winner will receive one for the value of £75 and Third place will receive a 20% discount voucher from our online shop. Runners up will be awarded a 15% discount voucher from our online shop with everyone receiving a 10% discount voucher to say thanks for taking the time to send in an entry!
