Entries are officially open to the industry’s young and talented hairdressers, with the 2018 FAME Team officially taking applications. The group is open to hairdressers that are ambitious, skillful and under 35, with international opportunities on offer for the lucky four who make it through.
The team is based on the similar concept created in the UK, and stands for The Fellowship Academy of Merit and Excellence, which re-launched in Australia four years ago. The winners, chosen annually, embark on a year-long journey where they are able to travel, make contacts, network, present and expand their skills. Opportunities include photographic shoots, fashion shows, media publicity, education seminars and more, and the competition is open to any young hairdresser, with no attention paid to their salon or brand affiliation.
“If you are fortunate enough to earn a place on the FAME team, you will experience one of the best years of your career,” said FAME Team Director Brett McKinnon. “The people you’ll meet, the contacts you’ll make and the skills you’ll learn can and will change the course of your life. As a career development program, the FAME team really is unparalleled in Australia.”
Entries close on December 8, and all entrants must download an entry kit and submit an image, a bio and why they deserve a spot in the team in their comprehensive entry package. Next year, the best entries will partake in the annual live finals before the winners are announced at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards.
Good luck to all the emerging artists who put themselves in the race!
