20 DAYS TILL 2017 BEAUTY SHORTLIST AWARDS ENTRIES CLOSE! Deadline: Tuesday 6 December, 5pm
ONLY 20 DAYS TILL THE 2017 AWARDS CLOSE on Tuesday 6th December at 5pm. Please make sure you don’t miss the deadline, it’s earlier this year – and so are the Awards!
Please ensure samples are with us on time. If you have any questions at all, please email Hannah (see below). The 2017 Online Entry Form, Categories and How To Enter are on the 2017 Awards Page HERE
This means entering by the end of November – or sooner – to be sure your samples will be in on time and the admin/invoicing is wrapped up. I cannot stress how important it is to enter earlier this year. The volume is larger and there will be no exceptions for late entries, we are a small team and are working flat out – we simply won’t have time to remind brands and we don’t want anyone to miss out).
“I love the integrity that shines through,
these Awards should be used as everyone’s shopping list”
Alexia Inge, co-founder, Cult Beauty
This year, for the first time, we will announce SHORTLISTED BRANDS in early-mid February. We’re also reviewing/sharing some of the best entries on social media, so you may want to get them in sooner instead of later so we can mention them before Christmas.
As you know we don’t send out numerous reminder emails. We’ll be sending a reminder next week and about a week before the awards close. We cannot make exceptions for late entries (if your entry fee, samples and form have not reached us by 5pm local time (i.e. California, Sydney or London time 5pm on Tuesday Dec 6th, it will be too late)
We’ve already made some incredibly good discoveries – beauty devices, aromatherapy-centric skincare and bath/body, and the home fragrance and advanced/high performance skincare entries have been fantastic, along with old favourites…so I hope you’ll join us for a very early breakfast on Thursday 2 March. If you’re entering or already have, good luck!!
You can also email our Awards Coordinator Hannah directly (instead of using the form) with the products you’re entering: email@example.com
- Fill out the online form or email Hannah with your entries (i.e. the products you’re entering)
- We will send you an invoice for the entry fee and the Next Steps (incl. address for samples).
The entry fee is £60 per product, e.g. 2 products £120. This year there’s an unlimited entry flat rate of £250 for 5 or more entries so you can enter 10 products for £250 if you so wish
- One product can be entered into various applicable categories
- We need TWO samples – full size, in full retail packaging (exceptions are makeup, we need up to 5 samples)
- Categories include Beauty, Men’s Grooming, Wellness, Aromatherapy
- have judges in Australia, Scandinavia, USA and UK for the first time – so overseas brands can ship samples locally if preferred.
- BRANDS DO NOT HAVE TO BE SOLD ON A UK WEBSITE TO BE ELIGIBLE TO ENTER THIS YEAR – NO RESTRICTIONS
SHORTLISTED BRANDS WILL BE ANNOUNCED EARLY TO MID FEBRUARY 2017
DISCOVER THE BEST OF THE NEW BEAUTY STARS ON THURSDAY 2 MARCH
Our Awards are not sponsored, we have no tie-ins or allegiance or behind the scenes affiliations with any brands whatsoever. The highest ranked products with the most glowing comments/positive feedback, win – so consumers know our awards are 100% ethical, transparent and the winning products really are gorgeous – and really do work.
Which is why past winners have launched into London retailers, sold out, and become new beauty heroes – it’s all about trust, good judges, and brilliant
