Meet The Hayu STELLAR InstaStar Nominees For InstaStar Of The Year Sponsored By Hayu

Ireland’s only awards for content creators are back, bigger and better for 2022!

After a hugely successful inaugural ceremony last November, the STELLAR Hayu InstaStars are back, and this time we’re free of the pandemic and building on last year’s brilliant event.

This year, we’ve got some absolutely incredible sponsors on board, with Hayu returning as our title sponsor, as well as our official jewellery partner Pandora and official beauty partner Benefit back on board for another year of glitz and glamour. On the night, Ketel One Vodka and Gordon’s will be whipping up cocktails for our guests before they take their seats for dinner and awards, which will be hosted by 2FM’s Laura Fox.

But now, it’s time for you to meet our nominees this year and get voting – make sure your favourite content creators receive your love.
