Below is an overview of Frequently Asked Questions. For a full overview of all criteria, please see our Iconic Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy.

Who can submit?

All stylists from the global KEVIN.MURPHY Salon Network.

What kind of stories can I submit?

  • You can submit any story that in some way made a difference to someone or something 
  • It can be a single event, or an ongoing initiative or program/event
  • The activity of your story must have taken place within the last 2 years; meaning earliest 1 June 2019
  • The story can involve you alone, or a team of people
  • During submission, you will need to select one or more categories that fits your story: Environment, Sustainability, Philanthropy, Diversity
  • If you have several stories that are significantly different from each other, you can submit multiple times

Why should I submit my story?

You should share your story with us and the rest of our global salon network, to encourage others to follow your lead. We know that you are probably not one to shout your accomplishments from the rooftops, but our hope and wish is that you will be the inspiration that many others are looking for.

When can I submit my story?

Submissions open on June 1, and the submission deadline is 2 months later on July 31. 

What information do I need to submit?

You will need to submit the following information and material:

  • Contact Information
  • Your Story (description, timing, selected category/categories)
  • Profile Picture of you / the team behind the story
  • Imagery and/or Video material related to your story. You can upload a maximum of 5 different media pieces to support your story 

All submissions must be made through our website.

Can I nominate others?

For data-regulation and consent-purposes, all submissions need to be done by the owner of the story. You can, and we hope that you will, encourage your peers to submit their stories.

When will the ICON be announced?

Following the submission deadline, our panel of like-minded representatives, will assess and evaluate all candidates, and select the Top 10. 

These 10 candidates will be highlighted on our website, until the ultimate ICON is announced in December.

The KEVIN.MURPHY ICON Award will be repeated every 2 years, leading up to our KEVIN.MURPHY Show(s) in 2023.
