AIPP Awards 2017-2018

What is the AIPP Awards?

The AIPP Awards is a hairdressing photographic contest organized by the AIPP (International Professional Hairdressing Magazines Association).

Our member publications receive thousands of photographs and press-packs each year. The intention of the AIPP Awards is to recognise outstanding achievement by professional hairdressers in photography and presentation of their work.

Entries are judged by an expert panel of hairdressing magazine editors.
