By Lindsay Gale23 August 2013

The international panel of judges of the 2013 World Demolition Awards have completed their initial deliberations for eight of the Award categories and the resulting shortlists can be announced. They will continue their deliberations to determine the eventual winners of each category, with the eventual winners will be announced on 31 October 2013 during the 2013 World Demolition Summit being held at the NH Grand Krasnapolski Hotel in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Two categories are proving more of a challenge for the judges and we hope to be able to announce the results of their further deliberations next Friday.
