One year ago we launched the very first edition of our Lentiamo Awards. It's been an amazing experience for us and we felt blessed, receiving thousands of entries from amazing makeup artists, cosplayers, body painters, sfx masters and Art lovers.
The result of our first edition exceeded our wildest expectations. We realized that our contact lenses are a tool that could bring together all the artists who took part in last year’s competition. That’s why we decided to repeat the contest, which allows us to support such creative minds. So, here we go: We’re officially announcing the launch of the Lentiamo Awards 2019 edition!
WHAT are the Lentiamo Awards all about?
This is how the competition works: In the first round, we invite you to take part in our open makeup contest! You’re all encouraged to submit your artistic, crazy, playful and fun makeup looks on your Instagram profile using the hashtag #LentiamoAwards2019. Our highly qualified jury will then select ten participants to take part in the second and final round!
By then, we've reached one of our favourite days of the year: Halloween!
Therefore, our finalists are invited to create a Halloween makeup. As a reward
for being in the Top 10, Lentiamo gives you a little help: You can choose a pair
of free crazy/coloured contact lenses and use them for your spooky
WHY should it be worth your while to create makeup art for us?
Well, because you can win up to 1000 Euros!
HOW are the winners chosen?
Quite simply, you vote for them. In the second and most important round, it's up to you to vote for your favourite makeup artist.
But there’s more! Each voter will receive a special discount code for
coloured and crazy contact lenses.
Join and you get the chance to win:
1st place = 1000€ 2nd place = 500€ 3rd place = 250€
The competition will take place in two rounds. Below you can find out more detailed info on how to join.
Starting on September the 2nd and until September the 26th, anyone can apply by creating any type of makeup mask. It doesn't have to be Halloween inspired, although it would be preferable. Everyone can join the competition by simply uploading their mask/makeup in their public Instagram account and tag the following hashtag and profile: #LentiamoAwards2019 & @lentiamo. If you have a Youtube channel that features your creations, you can participate by uploading a video with the same hashtags and/or mentioning us and sending us the link! The selection of the top 10 winners, going into the 2nd round, will depend on the Lentiamo judging panel’s choice.
Starting on the 26th of September, the top 10 participants can create any Halloween inspired makeup with coloured/crazy contact lenses (photo or video) and send it to us by October the 6th. The top 10 material will be uploaded on our website on the 7th of October 2019, where thousands of people will be able to click-and-vote their favourite. The selection of the 3 winners will be, according to the number of votes, on the 21st of October 2019. Also, there will be a great advantage for your community, because Voters will be granted a 20% discount code to order crazy lenses in our e-shop!
