New Training Categories at The Industry Awards!

We’re extremely excited to be welcoming four new Training award categories to this year’s Industry Awards. With only a couple of weeks until entries close, now’s your chance to get your submissions in.

Don’t miss the opportunity to make history and be crowned the first ever winner of:

  • Hairdressing Apprentice of the Year
  • Beauty Therapy Apprentice of the Year
  • Barbering Apprentice of the Year
  • Industry Assessor of the Year

As some of you will remember, we’ve previously had one overall Apprentice of the Year award, open to hairdressers, barbers or beauty therapists to enter. However, given the ever-growing talent in hairdressing, beauty therapy and barbering, it seemed only fair we create a separate category for each of the wonderful industries we represent.

If you’re a HITO hairdressing, beauty therapy or barbering apprentice, you can enter The Industry Awards for free and be in with the chance to win $2,500 towards professional development. Why wouldn’t you want to get involved?

When last year’s Apprentice of the Year, Vienna Moore was asked if she had any top tips on how to make a winning entry, she said:

“Be completely honest. If you really do love what you do and you’re passionate about it, that will come through in your writing, photos or however you choose to display it. When you try to be too generic then it’s not real.”


Another new addition to the Training awards is the Industry Assessor of the Year category, which recognises an Industry Assessor offering an excellent service to HITO apprentices.

With so many industry professionals contributing to the future of their industry, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate them and their successes. With more awards, there’s even more to celebrate!

We can’t wait to see you in your finery at this year’s event, it’s most definitely going to be bigger and better than ever.
