The winners of the 2018 International Beauty Industry Awards @ibi_beautyawards were announced this week in New York City. Hundreds of hair stylists and makeup artists from countries around the world submitted their work for a chance to win the world’s first globally inclusive, online-only hair and makeup competition in its inaugural year.

The mission of the revolutionary IBI Awards is to celebrate the people behind the brush, regardless of who they are, where they come from, who their clients are, or how many followers they have. What really matters is artistry, talent, dedication and creativity.

In contrast to traditional hair and makeup competitions, IBI Awards candidates are judged solely on their work. IBI’s independent Judging Council is made up of industry experts who do not see any identifying information, such as names, clientele, following, sponsorships, backgrounds or the candidate’s country of origin.

Submissions, judging and announcements all happen on IBI’s new innovative online platform. Candidates are not required to travel to an event, making the IBI Awards the most globally accessible award of its kind.

IBI Awards winner Jade Nicholl of Glasgow, Scotland who received an IBI Award for her entry in the Best Character/Cosplay category. Took to Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/p/BprbTmODAaY/) to express her excitement about her victory.  “Thank you so much to The International Beauty Industry Awards. For giving little makeup artists a shot at winning! The competition is anonymous, so they have no idea who you are or how many (social media) followers you have. Meaning we all have a shot! Made my year!”
