ABIA Winner – Educator of the Year Organisation

The recently renovated glamorous Hyatt Regency, Sydney, was the place to be on Sunday 27th September, where 580 glamorous and excited guests arrived for the annual Australian Beauty Industry Awards (ABIA’s) gala dinner. The evening kicked off with arrival champagne and canapés followed by host and MC for the evening, Mr Will Fennell, introducing the String Sirens Quartet as the blinds lifted to reveal a stunning backdrop of Darling Harbour.

Winners were announced in 26 categories and the Education Category was once again split into 2 awards for Individual and Organisation and was taken out by Otto MItter and The Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science respectively.

“We certainly broke all records this year in terms of number of entrants, the quality was second to none and we needed to en list double the number of judges! “ said Linda Woodhead, owner of mocha publishing and founder of the ABIA’s. “Not only did the number of entries increase this year by going to a fully online submission system, but the number of guests attending the gala catapulted to 580, our biggest ever! I believe the beauty industry should be very proud of the ABIA’s, as am I. It’s great to see the annual growth of the awards and how it is embraced as the benchmark of excellence, being the only National awards program in the Australian Beauty Industry.”

We are so thrilled to be recognised at the ABIA's Industry Awards!

Congratulations to the entire Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science team!
