How To Enter The Aesthetics Awards

The Aesthetics Awards bring together the very best in medical aesthetics and leaders in the profession to celebrate the achievements of the past year. Special categories have been designed to recognise the finalists and winners for their services to the profession and industry. Awards are presented to those who have worked hard to represent the highest standards in clinical excellence, product innovation and practice achievement and have truly excelled in the field of aesthetic medicine, from clinics and individual practitioners to manufacturers and suppliers.

Entry is FREE and open from May 2 and must be made via the Aesthetics Awards website. You can enter in as many categories as you wish but you may only enter yourself, a company you work for, an employee who works for your company or a product made or distributed by your company. Entries made on behalf of a third party will not be accepted. You may only enter each category once. Multiple entry forms for the same clinic, company, individual, treatment or product will be disregarded. All entries must be accompanied by the supporting evidence requested in the entry form. This information will be used to choose the lists of finalists and by the judges when voting on a winner. The list of finalists will be announced in the September issue of Aesthetics journal, after which the voting process will begin.

Entries must be completed via the website by the 30 June. There will be no opportunity to amend this once you have submitted your application online unless you pay an administration fee of £100 plus VAT and this information is received before shortlisting has begun. Late entries will also be subject to an administration fee of £100 plus VAT and acceptance is at the organiser's discretion.

If you have any questions please call our support team on 0203 096 1228 or email

How the entries are judged

After the closing date, the Aesthetics team consider all the entries to select a list of finalists in each category, which are published in the September issue of Aesthetics journal. Users registered on the Aesthetics website are able to vote for a winner in each of the following categories:

Each of these categories will also be assessed by the judging panel and although voting will make up a percentage of the final score, this will not constitute the majority.

Voting is IP address monitored and each individual can only vote in each category once. Multiple votes under the same name and from the same email address will also be discounted from the final total. Multiple voting from within finalist's organisations will be monitored. Voting on behalf of customers is strictly prohibited and votes that are suspected to have been submitted this way will be discounted.

The Ceremony

The winners are announced at the Aesthetics Awards ceremony which takes place in December. Where appropriate judges may also choose to Commend or Highly Commend particular finalists. These commendations will also be announced at the Aesthetics Awards where guests from the breadth of the industry come together, presenting the perfect opportunity to be recognised by fellow professionals, peers and customers as the best in medical aesthetics.
