Bodyshop Awards 2019: Finalists

bodyshop magazine is delighted to announce the finalists of the bodyshop Awards 2019. With so many high quality submissions this year, it’s been a tough job for the 12-strong adjudication jury of industry experts to whittle them down. But rise to the challenge they did at a secret squirrel meeting at bodyshop magazine’s headquarters near Aylesbury on Thursday 4 July.

The good news is that you won’t have to wait too long to find out who the ultimate category winners are. We’ll be unveiling them at a glamorous awards ceremony at bodyshop Live! 2019 on Friday 20 September.

A big thank you to everyone who took the time to submit a nomination this year and the very best of luck to all the finalists.
