Hair Expo Awards entry deadline extended for 2019

Media release

Wednesday 16 January 2019

Hair Expo Australia has announced that first-round submissions for its prestigious awards program will now be due on Wednesday 20 March 2019, providing increased opportunity for hairdressers from around Australia and New Zealand to enter.

“We appreciate that the holiday period is the busiest time of the year for most hair professionals and with that in mind, we decided to give a little more time for prospective entrants to get their submission in for 2019”, explained Elli Julia, Awards Manager for Hair Expo.

Head Judge and Awards Ambassador, Julie Piantadosi, added “it’s always a key consideration to strike the right balance between allowing adequate time for first-round awards submissions – especially for creative entries that require a photoshoot – and also providing enough time for judging prior to the finalist announcement. The decision to extend the deadline was based on feedback we’ve received from our community, and we’ve listened to those requests. We can’t wait to see all the wonderful work that pushes this industry forward each year!”

With Hair Expo recently announcing a new finalist announcement format for 2019, the key dates for the awards process have also changed slightly to reflect the new deadline.
