Since 2000, The STARS and RISING Stars Photo Competition, sponsored by Cosmetologists Chicago (CC), has been widely embraced by experienced salon professionals as well as novices.
New for 2013, CC has revamped and re-energized the contest. Among the slew of new ideas and opportunities for professionals who enter, will be a presentation to the winners on The Runway stage at America's Beauty Show, March 9 through 11, 2013 at McCormick Place in Chicago. The winners and their work will be introduced to the media and those attending the second annual BeautyBASH. The competition includes cash prizes, media recognition and complimentary accommodations in Chicago.
The STARS and RISING Stars entries will be judged on technical merit, execution and suitability of the styles of each category, as well as concept and overall approach. A select panel of industry leaders will serve as the final judges.
Those with three or more years in the profession may compete in as many of these all-new categories as desired. The RISING Star of ABS 2013 category targets cosmetology students or professionals with less than 3-years of experience:
