“I couldn't believe it when I heard that I won the Fudge Mixology Master 2018! The competition is global and huge. I feel so honoured to carry this title second time now. I've competed a lot, but this competition and my success in it, has opened so many doors for me. I'm just so happy!”

Tracy Hayes, Global Head of Technical Education, adds:

“How amazing for Janica to win a second time around in the Mixology competition. I really believe that what stood out for the judges was the thought process in her presentation of her entry format. It was clear to see step by step from the before picture, application and the finished look. Images that publications would love to have to show off Janica's creative work using Fudge Professional Headpaint and Paintbox colour. Well done!”
