Many thanks for all the entrants this year – some brilliant sheds – and it was hard fought at the end.

A great selection of sheddies from all over the UK Wales, Scotland and England this year – they are all amazing.

I will provide a top 5 sheds in each category so the other sheddies can see how they have done when I have the time in the coming weeks.

We had the most votes this year – in part thanks to the sheddies promoting their sheds on the various social networks –

So well done the sheddies who have made it to the judging panel – the winning shed will be announced during Shed Week 2011 – which starts on the 4th July – if you are doing anything special for shed week then contact me.

I would like to say thanks to the following people for their enthusiasm for this years competition, the Judges (Beeny, Gordon & Alex) and not forgetting last years winner Reg Miller for his constant love & promotion of sheds and good humor.

For the prizes and support and massive help with media and understanding of my strange ways – so big thanks to Cuprinol and the girls at Graying.

I look forward to Shed Week – and if you think you have a better shed than these sheddies (I dare you!) then sign up to be told when Entry is open for Shed of the year 2012.
