Lash Festival is free to enter and open to all qualified eyelash extension technicians. Entrants do not have to be trained by the host (The Eyelash Emporium) or be using the host’s products. Each registered entrant may submit up to 2 photographs of their own work in categories of their choice to count as their entry in the competition. Entrants can enter as many of the categories as they wish to, however they may only submit one entry per category.

The entrant must own the copyright to any pictures submitted and agree to the pictures being displayed in any media relating to Lash Festival or the promotion of the competition. Each valid entry must be solely created for the Lash Festival competition and should not have been submitted to any other competition.

Pictures will qualify for entry only if they are the sole work of the entrant and have not been unfairly enhanced or edited using image editing software. Out of courtesy to the models, skin smoothing and blemish removal is allowed. Copyright information may be displayed on the image but pictures with lash supplier trade names, offensive or irrelevant content may be excluded at the sole discretion of the organisers. Pictures can only be entered through the Lash Festival website, pictures shared by means of social media or sent by email cannot be included.

The finalists will be decided on by a judging panel. The final will then be decided by a public vote via the Lash Festival website. Public votes will be monitored by the competition hosts and; if suspicious voting patterns are detected, votes will be ruled out. If vote manipulation is detected, the entrant may be excluded from the competition. Votes are limited to one vote per entrant, per I.P. address, per day. The Judges’ decision is final in this matter.

Entry for the first round closes on 5th November 2018 at midnight GMT, the finalists will be announced as soon as possible after 27th November 2018. The final round will consist of 10 entrants picked by the judging panel for each category. Voting in the final will end on 12th December 2018. The results and final ranking will be announced on 18th December 2018 or as soon as possible after this date.
