The 2020 MAGAP Awards open tomorrow!

The Makeup Artist Guild Asia Pacific (The MAGAP) is excited to announce that entries into their annual makeup industry awards for 2020 will officially open tomorrow from 9am at themagap.com.

Created by industry innovator, Melanie Burnicle, the MAGAP Awards was launch in 2018 and are the premier awards platform specifically designed for the makeup industry, with over 22 categories being awarded in 2020. Melanie Burnicle, Director and Founder of The MAGAP Awards says, "As with many awards platforms and gala events, we've had to adapt the way we run the program this year.

"We hope by turning the awards night into an online show and reducing the entry fees, we will show support and kindness to our industry and that we'll be able to reach and recognise more of our industry professionals across Australia and continue to grow!" said Melanie.

Previous winners of the coveted Makeup Artist of the Year category have included the likes of Sarah Laidlaw and Shella Martin. The 2020 judging panel will once again consist of a curated mix of international and local artists and industry professionals who will individually judge the entries from the 22 categories remotely from Sunday 9th August 2020.
