The Day Has Come! The Hayu STELLAR InstaStar Awards Are Here

Here's what you can expect from the night

Roll out the red carpet, the Hayu InstaStar awards are back, and this year, we’re bigger than ever!

Tonight (September 30th) we’re welcoming the biggest and brightest names in Irish content creation to Dublin’s Morrison Hotel. Across twelve different categories, we’ll be honouring the people who make our feeds a better place, from beauty to podcasts and everything in between. 

We’ve upped our game from last year’s awards. We’ve added some shiny new categories and our guestlist is bursting at the seams with tonnes of the hottest names in Ireland. So you won’t want to miss the BTS content we’ll be sharing on Instagram when everything kicks off later this evening.

The categories are as follows:

  • InstaStar of the Year, sponsored by Hayu
  • Rising InstaStar, sponsored by Meta
  • Fashion Over 100k,  sponsored by Pandora
  • Fashion Under 100k, sponsored by Penneys
  • Beauty Over 50k, sponsored by Benefit
  • Beauty Under 50k, sponsored by Casmara
  • Wellness, sponsored by Perfectil
  • Travel, sponsored by TUI
  • Home & Lifestyle, sponsored by
  • Food
  • Comedy
  • Podcast

Take a look at our full list of nominees for each category here. 

Of course, each category will see a winner crowned throughout the night, but the fun doesn’t stop there as we’ll also be giving away an incredible prize for best dressed, thanks to Princess Cruises. Yep, expect our guests to bring their style A-game.

Right now, the goodie bags are packed and the places are set. Benefit Cosmetics will be making sure guests are perfectly pampered pre showtime. As our Beauty partner, they will be setting up a beauty suite at The Morrison Hotel – the perfect place to get glam before hitting the red carpet. 

Our nominees and guests will be welcomed with a drinks reception, where they’ll sip on cocktails sponsored by Gordon’s Gin and Ketel One Vodka while they get their picture taken and mingle. From there, they’ll head into the main function room where everyone will enjoy a three-course meal and our very deserving winners, as voted for by you, will be revealed. 

But the night won’t end there, as all those in attendance will be taking to the dance floor later in the evening with our Jewellery Partner Pandora throwing an exclusive after party, DJ’d by the fabulous Tara Kumar. 

Phew, we can hardly wait for the night to begin. Now, all that’s left to do is dust off our glad rags and get the party started!
