Recognition deserved
Innovative companies do not always get the credit they deserve from the academic, business or media world, and most importantly from consumers. Not any more.
Categories for any product available
The Global Beauty and Wellness Awards recognize outstanding performance in over one hundred categories in three market segments: luxury, premium and popular, both for men and women and also for unisex products and services.

A unique opportunity: Create a new category
If you don’t find the category you wanted to go for or one that you feel aligns closely with your brand, then you can propose your own category. These are called Special Awards for Beauty & Wellness Excellence in a category, you, yourself propose. After the Award Management Team accepts your proposal, the category suggested becomes a new, official award category.
Highly prestigious and independent jury
Completely independent with up to ten public members of unquestionable integrity. They vote on the shortlisted nominations pre-screened by additional members, who vote electronically to avoid any external influence on decisions. The Judges are beauty, cosmetics, FMCG and hotel industry association leaders, former or current global directors of blue-chip beauty companies and top bloggers.

No sponsors – Full independence assured
The award itself does not allow industry sponsors except for media or trade organizations that are open to cooperating with and publicizing GBWA.
High prestige, high marketing value
The classic GBWA awards are of high esteem due to the independent character, the professional background, and the unquestionable authority of judges. These awards represent top value for the most ambitious industry players, who are either already on top or want to get there.

Powerful marketing opportunities
It is so hard to differentiate nowadays in industries related to beauty and well-being. Maybe your brand just needs a one-off push like an Award to overcome competitors and escalate brand potential.

A FEW MORE TIPS

The classic GBWA awards may go to blue chip or indie companies alike in over 100 categories. You will compete only in your specific segment (luxury, premium, or popular) to ensure comparability. Also, you can select among male, female or unisex categories for each nominated product of yours.

The Special Awards for Beauty & Wellness Excellence go to applicants in a very specific, unique category, which is different or more specific than classic ones.

These are either awards for products that do not fit into any of the classic categories or go for a very special segment within a category (like a luxury teen face care product for boys). You are entitled to create a new category on your own subject to Management Team acceptance.

Please note, the same product can be nominated for both the classic GBWA Award and the Special Award for Excellence, so you can increase your chances of winning in a manner completely compliant to terms & conditions!

There are Continent Awards and Global Awards as well for each nomination category.

The Global Beauty & Wellness Awards are coordinated by Dublin based Follow Me Agency, founder of one of Europe’s major beauty and trend events, the TikTOP Fest & Awards (hosting exhibitors from the beauty and FMCG industries and giving awards to social media influencers

while facilitating interaction between fans and influencers). Administration, logistics and communications are handled from a team in Holland, Hungary and Mexico. In case income from nominations exceeds costs, proceeds will go to The Global Wellbeing Society in the UK in order to promote education and innovation for the advancement of global wellbeing.
