BeautyTech TO HOLD 13th ANNUAL STRUT YOUR STUFF ONLINE COMPETITION
WWWeb Services and BeautyTech are proud to announce the 13th annual Strut Your Stuff Online Nail Art and Enhancement Competition to be held October 1-13, 2011. Featuring an Enhancement and Mixed-Media Nail Art category for both Novices and Experts, the contest will take place on the BeautyTech Web site ( http://www.beautytech.com/contest/strut2011 ).
The 2011 Prize list now totals over $10,000 from more than 20 different companies. Highly respected nail professionals as well as past contest winners will sit on the judges' panel and evaluate the entrants' masterpieces. More than 70 entries were received in 2010 and THOUSANDS of page views!
We will be carrying over the PEER Judging for both Senior Divisions. This went very well last year and I feel it was very well accepted by all.
