Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) and Beauty Packaging Magazine are working together to present the new Beauty Innovation & Design Awards—also known as the BeautyID Awards—to recognize creativity in package design, material, and product formulation, and more. The awards will honor suppliers within the beauty industry at Cosmoprof North America’s event on July 10 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center (Las Vegas).
The awards will recognize all cosmetic product categories—hair, nail, skin, color, personal care, fragrance, and sustainability—across professional, prestige, and mass market segments. One of the categories is dedicated specifically to cosmetic contract manufacturing. BeautyID Award submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges that include representatives from Aware Products, Badger Winters, Barney’s, Clemson University, Estee Lauder, Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Hatch Beauty, Mary Kay, Mintel, MSLK, Stylus, ThisThatBeauty, and Walsh House. The judges will be looking for a combination of distinct design and user functionality.
Product submissions of any kind will be accepted, including those created as a new trend or as a design answering to a demand. Design, branding, and PR agencies as well as suppliers and product manufacturers can apply, however it should be noted that package and/or formulation cannot be in a conceptual stage and must have been launched between April 1, 2016- March 1, 2017. The judging panel will select one winner from each of the 11 categories as well as one Grand Award winner. In addition, an Audience Choice winner will be selected through public online voting scheduled to open late April. “We are thrilled to provide this unique opportunity to our beloved industry and grateful to our esteemed judging panel for lending their talent,” says Daniela Ciocan, marketing director of the Americas for Cosmoprof. “To the participants, the opportunity to be seen and heard by these influential individuals is tremendous. However, what also sets the award apart, is not only the recognition it provides, but also the unique prize package that grants winners access to tools that will assist in enhancing future creativity.”
