The Aesthetics Awards bring together the very best in medical aesthetics and leaders in the industry to celebrate the achievements of the past year.
For 2014, twenty-one prestigious awards 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 and have truly excelled in the field of aesthetic medicine, from clinics and individual practitioners to manufacturers and suppliers. Following the success of last year’s awards, the 2014 event will be bigger and more glamorous than ever. To be held on Saturday 6th December at the luxurious Park Plaza Hotel in Westminster, the evening will play host to 500 guests, new award categories and exciting entertainment. Aesthetics is delighted to announce Changing Faces as the official charity of the awards once again. Entries will be open from 12th May until the end of June, whereby a shortlist of finalists will be selected based on the key category criteria. Finalists will be announced in September and online voting and judging will commence until the end of October. The award winners, and those who have been highly commended and commended in their categories, will be announced at the awards presentation evening in December and winners will be invited on to the stage to receive their award in front of an audience of their peers, colleagues and friends.
