We're back, better than ever, Even more determined to award only the best entries of 2024.

The Attracta Beauty Awards are rich in professional expertise and beauty wisdom, always keen to educate and promote the concept of slow beauty, sustainability, inclusivity and ageless beauty. Products are only awarded that are highly effective and designed to show respect for the planet and people of all ages. The Awards are independent and not sponsored by any beauty brands.

The ABA24 entry criteria is a two stage payment process this year, to ensure new or small brands get an opportunity to enter and have their products or service judged by some of the best industry professionals in the UK today. If a brand is shortlisted as a Finalist on May 8th, they can proceed to stage 2 of the competition after the final payment process is complete. Logos are awarded to the Finalists, Highly Commended, Winners and Haute-Beauty Winners; and are available to use to promote your win for marketing purposes.

Our stage 2 fee is inclusive of logo usage, the winners award certificate, opportunity to be considered for the Attracta Eco-Beauty Award, potential IGTV live interview and invite to the Haute-Beauty presentation ceremony. Every entered brand has an opportunity to get invited to this special presentation ceremony on July 4th, if they reach the finalist stage and are then one of the top 10 highest scoring brands within the overall judging process.

Entering the Awards as an expert or with your products gives you the opportunity to maximise visibility of your brand, stand out from the competition and get your products judged by a team of leading professional industry Experts, Doctors, Make-Up, Nail and Hair Artists.
