Training Academy of the Year Awards 2023

The LashBase Training Academy of the Year Awards are back, and this year we are taking them global…It’s time to get nominating.

We run our TAOTY Awards every year, and we’re excited to be bringing them back again for the 6th year!

What are the LashBase Training Academy Awards?

At LashBase we’re all about giving back and celebrating the lash community. There are so many amazing lash trainers and training schools around who all deserve recognition, and we want you to shout about them! We want to recognise and give a boost to the best of the best that are helping improve the industry!

The Categories

This year we have 3 categories! It doesn’t matter if you are new or small, we hope to shine a light on the most deserving and passionate trainers.

This year’s categories are:

  • Best NEW Training Academy (Open under 2 years)
  • Best ESTABLISHED Training Academy (Open over 2 years)
  • Best ONLINE trainer / course

How do I nominate?

To nominate a trainer or training academy for any of the above categories simply click the link below and nominate the person you believe deserves to be shortlisted. Remember you can nominate a trainer or training academy for more than one category.


The deadline for nominations will be 1st September 2023.

Once the nominations have been tallied up, we will then announce the trainers and academies who have made the shortlist and voting will open again to decide the winner. They’ll be 4 trainers/academies shortlisted per category.

Voting will close on 15th September with the winners being announced on 20th September.  

And the best about it all is that there are no admin fees, no certificate fees, or ceremony contributions! Just good honest nominations and fair voting – that’s all we ask.

How will the winners be chosen?

Shortlisted entries will win a LashBase giftcard worth £50 and get recognition on our social channels.

We know that garnering votes can be a skill in itself which is unfair on some. That’s why we also use a panel of judges here at LashBase to help find the diamonds in the rough. Sure, the votes may get our attention, but we’re experienced enough to look deeper and give everyone a chance.

There will be one winner per category and each winner will receive a certificate, a winner's trophy, recognition on our social channels and £250 voucher each, and next training course of kits supplied by us*.

So, with all that being said it’s time to get nominating! Don’t forget our awards are open to training schools, academies, and self-employed trainers so anyone who teaches can be nominated.
