The flagship Aveda Institute professional hair and beauty school in Toronto is directly opposite St James Park at 155 King St East.  This is the green space where the 2012 Occupy Movement settled in the city, and the salon below and school up top both have wide windows that look out on to the park. For some students that must have been very challenging scenery. Truly gifted beauticians are therapists and empathic to ailments and societal malaise. The best of the breed do indeed feel like they were called to the job of being hair stylists from a higher power – they feel like they were born to style.

Born to Style is a nationwide search for Canada’s next top stylists; its a real contest into which many dozen young people will enter and four will find, after winning a live competition, that their entire tuition worth approx $10K each is paid in full.

AVEDA Institute Canada challenges young people to step up and prove they are Born to Style again in 2013; applicants need to show contest admin why they deserve to be included in each city’s top five finalists group. They need to make and publish video media to show what they will do when asked to perform in a live hair styling competition in front of important guests, and be judged by celebrity stylists in all four cities across Canada.

2013 Born to Style Hair School Scholarship Contest, presented by Aveda Institute Canada is the exact same structure as last year, and accepts video submissions until 1st March 2012.

This social media contest was created to help innovative and imaginative youth who are just starting out in beauty craft and perhaps, as yet, do NOT even know the basics of cutting hair.  This challenge could be the first step in a new career as a beautician or fashion stylist. The competition is designed to help these young artists become world class stylists and a satisfying career that begins by winning all tuition expenses paid prize to be redeemed at AVEDA Institute in Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver.

Do you wonder what it would be like to win a contest like this? How would this change your life, exactly? The Aveda Institute Canada blog did a good job Catching Up With Winnipeg’s Robyn Thompson, the girl that won the grand prize in Winnipeg last year.

There will be four hair showdowns, one in each city Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver. Stay tuned to the social media channels in each of the cities for the dates.

Three Exciting New Photo Contests From Lenzr!

Lenzr's Photo Contest: Broken Factories for Solarsoft ERP software, Making It Beautiful by Aveda Beauty School, Canadian Beaches for Bathing Belle designer swimwear

Canadian Beaches

Canadian Beaches Lenzr Photo ContestCanadian beaches can be fun in the winter too. And of course they are  great in the summer. Although Canada isn’t known for its warm climate, our landscape is just as diverse as our culture. The many different beaches all across this country provide unique settings for photographers to shoot subjects and nature itself – think the scenic mountains and rolling waves at Radar Beach, or the sunset reflecting off the vista at Sauble Beach, and the faces and bodies of enthusiastic surfers frolicking among the monster waves of Tofino.

Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, Lenzr’s Canadian Beaches Photography Contest gives you the perfect opportunity to showcase your best work. The contest focuses on capturing the extraordinary beauty of our country’s waterscapes. Submit your best photo of a Canadian beach and you can win three pieces of designer swimwear from an exclusive line.

Broken Factories

Broken Factories Photo Contest - Win a netbook from an ERP software company Perfection is overrated. There’s definitely something more intriguing about imperfections. That’s the basis behind Lenzr’s Broken Factories Photo Contest which has been sponsored by North American based erp software company. Canada has undergone many different phases of urbanization and development in the past, and many buildings were left behind; abandoned and forgotten. Lenzr is interested in bringing those buildings back to life in art and so holds a public exhibition of urban decay. Though these abandoned warehouses may appear ‘broken’, a greater sense of natural re-organization is taking place; a process from disorder to order called entropy (as per Rudulf Arnheim 1971 Entropy and Art).

Participanting photographers are encouraged to find and highlight the beauty of imperfection. Submit your favourite photos of abandoned warehouses and crumbling buildings to the Broken Factories Contest for your chance to win a Toshiba netbook when the contest ends Jan 1st 2011.

Making It Beautiful

Making It Beautiful Photo Contest by Aveda beauty school …And from disorder to order, the last contest focuses on the process to perfection. What does it mean to make something really beautiful? How is beauty created, enhanced, and reflected? Lenzr’s Making It Beautiful Contest focuses on these questions, and wants you to capture snapshots of people in the process of perfecting their creations.

Whether it be a sculptor fine-tuning the details on his statue, or a painter’s hand getting the shading just right – make sure that your photograph captures a human being in the process of making something beautiful. Then submit it to Lenzr for a chance to win $500 worth of advanced beauty products from a well-known beauty school.

All contests have already started but good news – you still have time. Voting starts December 20th and will continue until the contest ends at 12:01am on January 1st, 2011. Open to all Canadians (excluding residents of Quebec) 13 years of age or older. A note from the organizers: Just remember to write down the beach name and location in order to be eligible.

Get your cameras out and start shooting! Good luck.
