ALTERNATIVE HAIR ANNOUNCES THE 2008 VISIONARY AWARD The VISIONARY AWARD is a special photographic competition that embraces artistic hairdressers and recognises their talent and vision. From all the entries received, 12 hairdressers will be selected to appear in the Visionary Award Presentation at the 2008 Alternative Hair Show at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday, October 19th. One of these 10 will be then chosen to participate with their own show in 2009. The selection process commences with the creation of 1 image. This year Alternative Hair pays homage to its International Patron, Vidal Sassoon, and it is therefore fitting that the 2008 Visionary Award should invite entrants to take reference from Vidal’s work to create a contemporary image inspired by his iconic hairstyles. As the purpose of Alternative Hair is to raise funds for Leukaemia Research, an entry fee of £30 is payable. This will go directly to Leukaemia Research. (All entrants are therefore required to enclose a cheque payable to ‘Leukaemia Research’ together with their photograph.) Please note that the closing date for entry is Friday 29th August.
