Last year's winner was Chris Hield, who took the overall Shed of the Year. Named Bux End, the shed was a Middle Earth-inspired hobbit hole in the Peak District which had a grass roof and embraced bee hives, birds nests and more wildlife.
Past winners include a shed made out of an upturned boat and a shed made from entirely recycled materials, with solar panels.
Wilcox said: "There has been a definite shift towards a more natural approach to the great outdoors but we are still loving seeing the amazing ways people use their sheds - from the complete out of the ordinary to the almost absurd!"
