I am completely passionate about my event - giving over 600 hours of my time to create, and develop it plus I have to date self funded it.
The Perth Hair and Makeup Artist Awards is primarily an event to showcase and promote the outstanding talent of Perth's Hair and Makeup Artists in a runway styled competition in collaboration with emerging models and emerging fashion designers. After all it takes a community to create fashion and beauty. There is also a hair and makeup expo attached to the event and a new body art category. I am open to changing the competition format in order to receive funding.

The total cost including in-kind sponsorship was set at $96,000 by a grant writer earlier this year. I would love funding from $40 - $60,000 in order to pay myself, a team, the models and have money to promote the event to reach a larger audience. This is because I believe in the talent of the artists and this event is also trying to raise the profile of the industry so that we all get paid better for our skills. Public awareness is key to the survival of this industry.
I look forward to hearing from you if you love hair makeup and fashion or know where I can get funding for this area and are committed to assisting me in my goal - thank you Shelley Meyer
