Babtac launches Inspiring Beauty Awards to celebrate beauty professionals
The British Association of Beauty Therapy & Cosmetology (Babtac) has launched the Inspiring Beauty Awards, which celebrates professionals in the beauty industry who have shown incredible positivity and vision during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Life is incredibly tough for people working in beauty right now, so we’ve created these awards to applaud their strength and resilience in what has been an extremely difficult time,” said Babtac chair Lesley Blair.
“We feel after a very difficult year, it’s only right to applaud the hard work of so many and hope it helps to uplift and motivate our sector."
The Babtac Inspiring Beauty Awards have four categories you can enter:
- Charity Champion – this category recognises those who have gone all out helping – either in their local communities or for any other charitable causes during the coronavirus pandemic (sponsored by SGI).
- Best Business Pivot During Covid-19 Crisis – this award highlights those who have successfully changed their business direction during the pandemic to better their bottom line (sponsored by NAVY).
- Industry Expert Supporting People Working In Beauty – this category highlights an industry expert who has excelled in revealing the plight of people working in the beauty sector and providing them with much-needed support (sponsored by Guinot).
- Best Use of Communication and Social Media Throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic – this award honours those who despite the often last-minute closures of their business, have created innovative ways of communicating with their clients (sponsored by Balens).
Deadline for entries is Monday, February 8. For each category, you will need to submit 500–700 words explaining why you (or the person you have nominated) deserve to win the award, and you can include any relevant photos or evidence relevant to your entry.
The winner of each category will receive a trophy and be promoted on Babtac’s social media channels, website and via regional press.
The judging panel will include both internal and independent judges to ensure objectivity, including skincare guru and author Caroline Hirons. The winners will be revealed on Friday, March 5.
