Rockler Announces 2nd Annual Video Contest

January 13, 2014

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced its 2nd annual Nordys Woodworking Video Contest, referred to as “The Nordys” after Rockler's founder, Nordy Rockler. The contest will accept entries through February 22, 2014.

Each year, the contest is centered around a theme, and the theme for 2014 is to "Inspire the Future Generation of Woodworkers." Entrants are eligible to win in the People's Choice and Academy Choice categories. A public vote on Facebook will determine the People's Choice winners, and the Academy will determine the winners in their category.

The Grand Prize in the Academy Choice category is an Ultimate Router Table Package valued at more than $1,200. The top prize in the People's Choice category is an Ultimate Finishing Package complete with quart- and gallon-size Mixing Mate paint lids, an HVLP sprayer, bench cookie work grippers and a bundle of accessories.

Nordys entrants are encouraged to use their creativity to create video submissions lasting two minutes or less that show woodworking in ways that will get younger viewers interested in the craft of woodworking. The videos will be posted on YouTube for public viewing and on the Rockler Facebook page, which is where voting will occur. The videos will also be reviewed by a panel of Rockler judges (the "Academy"). The winners will be announced the week of March 4, 2014.
