New Zealand Hairdressers! Enter Your Collection by 14 August for a Chance to Win Worldwide Publication

Hair Shots 2 The World New Zealand

Hair Shots 2 The World is giving away two international releases of suitable hair fashion collections… One prize is for Junior hairdressers – apprentices and those up to 5 years from qualifying and one for Seniors.

PRIZES for each category: 1 x Hair Shots 2 The World International PR release to the world’s hairdressing media. Total value is $AUD630. Winners will receive:

    • A strategized release to trade and consumer hair magazines around the world, media liaison including the sourcing of any additional information or interviews from you that might arise.
    •  Supply of electronic and/or print clippings
    •  Media monitoring for a minimum of 18 months from the date of release,
    • Two reports; one initial email update on early progress, and a progress report on request.


All Entrants please submit your entry by email no later than 7pm, Monday 14 August (NZ time).  (Extended deadline).

    1. Simply email your collection or highlights set to hairshots [at] (low res images).  (Instead of a collection, you may alternatively submit a set of 4-6 'highlights' images, separate shots that are highlights of your work to date.  These could be from colour or other competitions).
    2.   include the collection credits and personal details (name, salon, position), 
    3.  Please also confirm that model and photographer release permission is on hand.  
    4. Plus entrants in the Junior category must supply their boss's email address so we can to confirm that you are either an apprentice or hairdresser qualified up to 5 years.

 Winners will be announced on Facebook and Instagram on Monday 21 August.  (We will be in touch with the winners with instructions on how to supply the high res version of the winning collection)

 The judging criteria are:

    • technical hairdressing,
    • photo theme/style,
    • innovation/fashion forward, and
    • suitability of Photoshop usage.

 An international panel of judges will judge the best collection in each category for publication. They are:

    • Sheryl Buckley, Images Magazine
    • Damien Rinaldo, 2017 Australian Hair Fashion Awards Hairdresser of the Year
    • Ruth Hunsley, RedMane Media UK (formerly editor of Hairdressers Journal International)
