25 January 2008 – SPH Magazines Pte Ltd ("SPH Magazines") is holding industry’s much-anticipated annual beauty event for the 7th year running under the banner of Her World, Singapore´s number one women´s magazine . The Her World Beauty Awards 2007 will be held on 31 January 2008 (Thursday) at the Pan Pacific Singapore, from 3pm to 5pm.
The Event honours outstanding players in the beauty industry for products that have demonstrated unparalleled superiority and innovation.
The annual Her World Beauty Awards aims to acknowledge the companies that are instrumental in influencing beauty and lifestyle trends through continually striving to deliver products of distinction to consumers.
Each year, beauty houses launch thousands of beauty and skincare products with new ingredients and improved skincare technologies. With so many products on offer, consumers are often spoilt for choice. With this in mind, the team at Her World narrowed down the product selections to a few hundred and road-tested them to arrive at a list of outstanding products that meet consumer needs. Readers were also invited to vote for their favorites in a nomination poll.
Avid support from readers and advertisers has established the Her World Beauty Awards as the most important beauty event in Singapore, contributing to its success every year.
This year, 53 awards in 32 major product categories will be given away. Awards will be given according to the Readers´ and Editors´ choices respectively. Out of the 53 awards, there will also be a grand prize – the Her World Beauty Award of the Year – which is given out by the editorial judging panel for a product which they feel is exceptional. This winner is an all-rounder, in that it is innovative, user-friendly, delivers on its promises, and one of a kind.
"SPH Magazines is really proud to host this event to give due recognition for the products we have been supporting in our magazine. Our advertisers are like our family. We help them nuture their products not just through placing their advertisements in our magazine, but through our editorial and events and in any manner we can come up with. So when the product grows in recognition and reap good sales, we feel that we share the same familial pride with them," says Managing Director, Allen Loh.
