Aveda have announced the talented finalists progressing to the next phase of their Colour Harmony competition, rewarding the entrants who captured the brand’s identity, impressed them with their creative acumen and defined the concept of ‘Worldhood’ in their art.

The 2019 Aveda Colour Harmony finals are almost upon us, as the awards night will be held on Monday August 26 in Sydney, with a cultural, community focussed theme titled ‘Worldhood’ driving both the competition and the event. The brand has named three finalists in each category, honouring emerging and established icons of the Aveda community for their diverse editorial interpretations of the important theme.

The ‘Worldhood’ theme channels this format to evoke a “visual culture born of self-expression and creative play for a new globally connected reality”.  The theme tasks entrants with interpreting and working within global and social trends that have been connected and homogenised across continents with the advent of social media, but which we still view, create from and are inspired by differently. The competition will crown winners in categories of Colour Harmony, New Talent, Editorial and Digital.

As the Aveda Colour Harmony Award’s 2019 media partners, INSTYLE is offering you the golden ticket to go to the event, indulge in the festivities, be inspired by the live model presentations and watch the award winners be crowned live.
