The IBI Awards is a worldwide hair and makeup artistry competition focused purely on celebrating the beauty industry’s top talent. 

New York, New York, February 1, 2021, The coveted 2020-2021 International Beauty Industry Awards have been announced. This year, Hair and Makeup Artisans, representing over 30 countries entered their work in nearly 50 categories that celebrate the many specialty fields in the Beauty Industry—from Natural Looks to Special Effects.

The 2020-2021 winners and finalists were chosen from among a number of artists working around the world, including France, Japan, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ireland, Malaysia and many more.

The International Beauty Industry Awards were founded on the belief that inclusivity and accessibility matter. IBI’s mission is to give beauty artisans an international platform to be recognized, offer an all-inclusive outlet for opportunity, and cultivate a global community of discovery and inspiration.

In contrast to traditional hair and makeup competitions, IBI Awards candidates are judged blindly, solely on their own submission. This ensures that all artists are on an equal playing field.

IBI’s Independent Judging Council is made up of international industry experts who do not have access to any identifying information, such as names, clientele, number of followers, sponsorships, backgrounds, or the candidate’s country of origin.

The IBI Awards are fully independent, without  sponsors or brand influence, and the competition is open to Makeup and Hair Artists over the age of 18, from (almost) anywhere in the world.

The mission of The IBI Awards is to celebrate excellence, talent, hard work and creativity in global beauty artisans, and to do this in the fairest, most inclusive, accessible, and uninfluenced way possible to ensure that everyone has a seat at the table regardless of their number of followers, socioeconomic status, location, race, or gender.

While products are often the focus of the beauty industry, the revolutionary IBI Awards focus on the people behind the brush creating beauty artistry in the mediums of hair and makeup. Global beauty artisans do not have to work with celebrities or have millions of followers to create award-winning work.
