Princess Gard won last year’s Stars Photo Competition with this image, which later appeared on NAILS’ cover.
Nail professionals can show the world their creativity by designing and photographing their best work to enter in the International Nail Technicians Association (INTA) Stars Nail Design photo competition. The concept for the Stars Nail Design competition is for nail techs to create a set of design nails using extensions, nail art, colored acrylic, or gel to achieve a creative presentation of their work. Entrants are judged on both technical execution and creativity along with photo expertise. Finalists will be selected and judged by industry celebrities and editors, including Jan Arnold, co-founder of CND, nail technician Vicki Peters, and NAILS editor Hannah Lee.
The Stars Nail Design winner will receive:
• $500 cash and prizes
• INTA membership for one year (including free admission to the 2012 America’s Beauty Show)
• Free admission to America’s Beauty Show, March 12-14, 2011
• Commemorative plaque
• Their winning photo entry on www.AmericasBeautyShow.com
• Local and national publicity
The deadline for entries is February 11, 2011. Applications and can be found at www.AmericasBeautyShow.com/starscontest or by calling (800) 648-2505.
