My Green Pod editor and co-founder Katie Hill joins the judging panel for the 2020 Beauty Shortlist Awards

Celebrating 10 years this year, the Beauty Shortlist’s 2020 Beauty & Wellbeing Awards are now open for entries.

Launched by beauty journalist Fiona Klonarides, the Beauty Shortlist Awards celebrate ethics and excellence across beauty, grooming and natural health.

The Beauty Shortlist doesn’t accept sponsors and never runs ads; all its content and reviews are editorial, not paid for.

New categories this year include hemp and CBD, plastic-free and recyclable products and age-specific and anti-pollution skincare.

Sponsor-free, ad-free, cruelty-free and completely independent, these awards went global in 2017, with judges based in London, New York and Sydney.

Entries close on 08 November 2019, and the awards will be announced on 02 March 2020.
