How it works
A one-of-a-kind celebration honoring the trailblazers and risk-takers
breaking away from the beauty status quo.
The awards of the entire beauty supply chain
Cosmoprof Awards are unlike any of the Beauty Awards that have come before it.
Why? Because Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna is the only show where exhibitors are from every sector of the beauty supply chain, from raw materials to formulation, from packaging to OEM/ODM, from machinery to finished products (Cosmetics & Toiletries, Beauty Salon, Hair, Nail)
Our Awards open to submissions from entries in 10 categories. Each category has a distinct evaluation and submission criteria by two juries.
- Cosmoprof Awards will give a quality seal to the most outstanding finished products
- Cosmopack Awards formally recognizes the innovations, technologies improvements and new trends in beauty formulation and packaging design
- The Lifetime Achievement Award is given every year to a founder of a beauty company that have served as an inspiration to aspire towards.
The Awards are open to all exhibiting companies. Participation is free of charge.
