CIDESCO - The International Link to the World of Beauty and Spa Therapy

CIDESCO Awards

At the 40th General Assembly held in Vienna August 1986, the formation of an Awards Commission was ratified.

The new regulations provide that three prizes may (but not necessarily) be awarded every two years, one in each of the fields of Esthetics, Cosmetology, Education and Training.

The awards are intended to honour persons who have contributed with dedication and commitment within the framework of CIDESCO International.
