Written by

SJC Media is thrilled to announce the launch of its 3rd annual Beauty Awards, Canada's most prestigious beauty award program recognizing the top products across six key categories: skincare, makeup, hair care, nail care, bath & body, and fragrance. 

This year marks a monumental year for the Awards, welcoming HELLO! Canada to the esteemed judging panel alongside returning partners Chatelaine, Châtelaine and FASHION magazines. The collaboration brings together a powerhouse team of industry experts, including dermatologists, makeup artists, hairstylists and editors, for a truly comprehensive evaluation process.

"The growth of the Beauty Awards over the past four years has been truly remarkable," said Tobiasz Woriecki, Director of Client Solutions. "It's become a highly anticipated event in the Canadian beauty landscape, providing a unique opportunity for brands to showcase their products to a vast and engaged audience. Our trusted and renowned media brands offer unparalleled reach and credibility, making this a must-have partnership for any beauty brand looking to elevate their profile."

The judging panel, composed of 39 esteemed professionals, meticulously evaluated hundreds of beauty products across all categories to pick their top 125. With a keen eye for quality and innovation, they've identified the can't-live-without essentials that deserve a coveted spot in your beauty routine.

The winning products were celebrated in a truly magnificent way. Leo Tapel, lead designer and art director of SJC Media's branded content arm planned and executed a high-fashion, Renaissance-inspired shoot featuring a diverse group of models. The images from the shoot were featured in an immersive 16-page spread across the summer issues of the four magazines, as well as an elevated digital destination hosted across all SJC Media websites. Both the print and digital designs were created by Tapel.

Finally, to further celebrate the incredible products honoured at the Awards, SJC Media is hosting a giveaway contest across all participating brands this summer. Four lucky winners will be chosen to receive a beauty product bundle valued at more than $2,000 each. Stay tuned for details on how to enter this exciting contest.
