The International Visionary Award 2023 (IVA2023) is one of the most internationally recognised hair award competitions. It rewards the most artistic and creative work in the industry.
The International Visionary Award 2023 competition organiser is Alternative Hair. Every year, they receive 1000s of entries from the world’s most creative hairdressers. Now is your opportunity to participate in this highly anticipated global hairdressing competition and become known by the biggest names in the profession.
IVA is inviting all hairdressers from all over the world to take part in the contest by signing up at www.alternativehair.org and uploading as many photographic collections into the 3 categories : Avant-garde, Cut & Colour and Men’s.
In 2022 the Alternative Hair Show raised £105,000. Of this, a grant of £68,000 went to Blood Cancer UK and £25,000 to World Child Cancer. Another £12,000 also went to Taza Catholic Health Centre to help improve quality health services in Ethiopia.
Between 1997 and 2001, 79% of children and young people with blood cancer survived at least five years, but by 2012 to 2016, the survival rate had increased to 89%. This survival rate continues to increase with the additional funds we grant each year to childhood blood cancer research.
