2017 ELLE Beauty Grand Prix

ELLE QUÉBEC and ELLE CANADA are seeking 750 readers to blind-test and judge beauty products from the leading cosmetics companies. Why not join the judging panel and vote for your favorite beauty and care products!

1 • Members of the judging panel will be selected from across Canada based on their answers to the following questionnaire. Please answer as sincerely as possible and submit only one form per person. (Submitting multiple forms will not increase your odds of being selected.)
2 • Each member of the judging panel will receive camouflaged beauty products in certain categories (face/body/makeup/hair) that they will be asked to rate.
3 • The judges will have approximately 11 weeks to test the products. They will attribute a score to each product and complete a logbook online. The product in each category that receives the highest total score will be declared the winner.

If you would like to be part of the judging panel, please complete the questionnaire by December 16, 2016.
The testing period will run from March 6 to May 19, 2017.

Readers who are selected to be part of the judging panel will be notified by email from January 9, 2017, and must confirm their acceptance. Watch your inbox!
