Since 2000, the STARS and RISING Stars Photo Competitions, sponsored by Cosmetologists Chicago, have been enthusiastically embraced by established salon professionals as well as those just entering our exciting industry. For 2013, Cosmetologists Chicago has revamped and re-energized this popular contest that proves the creativity, talent, technical expertise, and competitive spirit of the hundreds who choose to enter and display a glimpse of their work.
Winners will be announced at America’s Beauty Show, March 9-11, 2013 at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago. The winners and their work will be introduced to the media and hundreds of their peers attending the second annual BeautyBASH on Saturday, March 9. The STARS Photo Competition also includes cash prizes, media recognition, and complimentary accommodations in downtown Chicago.
Entries are judged on technical merit, execution, and suitability of the styles of each category, as well as concept and overall approach. A select panel of leaders in the industry will be the final judges for STARS and RISING Stars.
For the International Nail Technician of the Year category, photos will be judged on creativity and technical merit in natural or nail enhancement work. Entrants must present two images showcasing the model’s full hand.
The deadline for entries is January 25, 2013. Entry forms and rules are available for download at www.AmericasBeautyShow.com or by calling (312) 321-6809.
