Inixia Photographic Awards

The ALFAPARF MILANO INIXIA PHOTOGRAPHIC AWARD 2017 recognises the importance of generating highly artistic visual images that will inspire Hairdressers and customers alike.

The ALFAPARF Milano ‘INIXIA’ Photographic Award

The objective of this category is to create a ‘front cover look’ that is commercial and reflects current trends. The winning entry will showcase ALFAPARF Milano colour in a beautiful and inspiring way that will appeal to salon clients.

The winner of this competition will join our Nexxt Generation Creative Ambassadors for a professional photo shoot, recreating the winning look with a top photographer in the city of London.

In addition, the winning entry will be used extensively in both consumer and trade press by ALFAPARF Milano Ireland throughout the following 12 months.


Competitors will submit their entry for pre-judging by October 5th 2017.

The submitted photograph will be assessed by our panel of judges.


All qualified hairdressers who work on the island of Ireland in a commercial environment and have done so for a minimum of three years, excluding training, may enter this category.
