Only those products that are being submitted for a ‘Best New’ award designations need to have been released between January 1, 2022 - September 1, 2023. For all other award designations, products can be released at any time.

You can promote your award designation however you like! The options are endless. As a winner, you’ll also unlock a variety of exclusive and unique amplification opportunities that make it easy to maximize the impact of your award.

Ten sample products need to be received by the sample delivery date (January 9, 2023)  and can be shipped any time prior. The shipping address is:
SJC (ATTN: Beauty Awards)
15 Benton Road,
Toronto, ON  M6M 3G2.

All winners will appear in a special Beauty Awards editorial feature that will be published in print and digital across FASHION, Chatelaine and Châtelaine. The feature will launch Fall/Winter 2023. Winning products will also be showcased on the official website.

Yes, you can submit products that haven't been released yet. However, the products need to be available for sale on the Canadian market by September 1, 2023. You would also need to be able to provide us with ten samples of the product by the sample delivery date, January 9, 2023.

You can submit a product into multiple award designations, but that product will only be eligible to win in one of those award designations. Products being submitted into multiple award designations need to be entered as separate submissions as they will be judged separately and may be tested by a different set of judges. 

The fee to submit a product is $500 CAD per award designation submission.

As part of the evaluation process, your product samples get distributed to  a panel of beauty editors and industry experts for testing and evaluation. We also save a few of your samples to use for photography and promotional purposes in the event that your product wins an award.

As part of their job, our beauty editors get exposed to thousands of products every year, making it impossible to evaluate and test them all. Our submissions process ensures that your product will not get lost among the mountain of beauty PR sent to use every year. By paying a submission fee, we guarantee that your product will be thoroughly tested and evaluated by our panel of beauty editors and industry experts for a chance to win one of our award designations. The Beauty Awards goes to great lengths to ensure the success and legitimacy of the program. Your submission fee helps us cover the many costs associated with maintaining the credibility and viability of the program.
