Training Academy Of The Year 2021

The LashBase Training Academy of the Year Awards is back and 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 4th year!

This year's awards are a little later than usual due to multiple lockdowns, but now the industry is getting back to normal we thought now was the perfect time to kick off the nominations.

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!

Last year’s awards were a massive success with Emma Carter of Luxe Beauty Training taking home the TAOTY Award and we are excited to open the nominations for the 4th LashBase TAOTY Awards.

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 is 20th September 2021.

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 28th September with the winners being announced on 30th 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.



The Categories

This year we’ve changed things up and we now have 4 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 Solo Trainer

Best Training Company (more than one trainer)

How will the winners be chosen?

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.

They'll be one winner per category and each winner will receive a winner's trophy and UK-wide recognition!

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.If you’re reading this and you’re thinking “I’m a trainer and I want to be nominated” don’t worry, we got you! We’ve put together some marketing images below which you can use to help you get those nominations.

Thank you for showing your appreciation to all the amazing trainers and academies out there.

Good Luck to Everyone!

It’s time to nominate….
