Judging day for Goldwell's Color Zoom kicked off at 8 this morning and it is as exciting in the judges' quarters as it is on the competition floor. Well almost! We are ten judges representing several countries including Taiwan, the UK and the Netherlands.Artists from 26 countries are represented as finalists in the competition.
Color Zoom is divided in to 3 categories: Partner (artists affiliated with Goldwell), New Talent (artists with less than five years experience) and Creative (artists with more than five years of experience but not signed with Goldwell).
While the competitors are working on their live models, we, the "jury," are judging the photo entries which are simply fantastic. The Creative category alone has 26 entries.
It looks to be an inspiring day and I am honored to be one of the International judges (including Nick Arrojo and Rona O'Conner) representing the United States!
