Fellowship for British Hairdressing Launches new Afro Image Award

You are here

One of the most anticipated industry awards is back – with a brand-new category for 2021!

The Afro Image Award is open to any hairdresser who produces beautiful textured hair. The image should be a professional photo shot in a studio setting, but due to disruption this year, the image can be from your portfolio from any time.

To enter, you need to upload three images, tag in @fellowshiphair and use the hashtag #fellowshipafro21

Chancellor Ashleigh Hodges, explains:

Our industry is incredibly diverse, and we wanted to recognise all hairdressers, all skills and talent, so introducing our Afro Image Award was a natural step to take in 2021. There are some incredibly talented hairdressers who specialise in textured hair and are looking forward to seeing all the images entered on social media.

The Afro Image Award joins the other categories in the Fellowship Awards: Snapshot Award, Men’s Image Award, and Colour Image Award. These are now all launched, with the closing date of 3rd September.

Fellowship Image Award launches in June. The finalists and winners will be announced at the annual Fellowship Awards in December.

Criteria for 2021
Snapshot Image

The Snapshot Image is now in its fourth year and is for any non-professional hair image - photos of salon work, show looks, or any other creation produced outside of a photo studio. Considering the lockdowns and lack of opportunity to get creative in 2020, the Snapshot Image is open to any work from entrants’ back catalogues – as long as it’s not from a professional photoshoot, it can be entered.
