European Design Prize for Wood Carvers

The European Design Prize for Wood Carvers, which is awarded on a two- to three-year cycle, has set the standard for European wood carving for years.

"Through STIHL products we help the artists to work powerfully and expertly in and with nature and to shape it. In the context of the European Design Prize for Wood Carvers we particularly want to acknowledge those who use our products to create impressive wooden works of art", explained Paul F. Sumalowitsch, STIHL's head of sponsorship. STIHL is also supporting the current European Design Prize for Wood Carvers award by providing the main prizes worth a total of €5,000. In addition, STIHL is donating commendations in the form of three STIHL MSA 200 C-BQ carving cordless chain saws.

The theme for this year's competition is "Network".
