Swiss Influencer Awards 2023

In October 2023 Smile Swiss Influencer Awards took place at “The Hall” in Dübendorf. The prize is awarded to personalities who move Switzerland with inspiring content.

A total of 54 influencers were nominated, with six competing in each of nine categories.

The winners were determined:

Category “Beauty” – Mimoza
Category “Music” – EAZ
Category “Food” – Noah Bachofen
Category “Fashion” – Mirlinda Lajqi
Category “Lifestyle” – Ardiana Lekaj
Category “Sport” – Hubercop
Category “Family” – Pralinata
Category “Entertainment” – T-ROMINO
Category “Travel” – Instaswiss

In the tenth category, the “Newcomer Influencer of the Year” was chosen from all participants in the Brand Challenges. This year’s winner is Veronika Kiriak, who, in the opinion of jury member Fabian Plüss, “has proven that a mixture of authenticity, real-life insights and a pinch of humor is an absolute recipe for success. Switzerland can be proud to have so many young talents in the content business.”

In addition to recognizing influencer talent, the event also offered a musical spectacle. Ilira, the Bernese musician with Albanian roots, created a buzz with her dance rhythms, while R&B singer Naomi Lareine enchanted the audience with her soft sounds. After the show, the guests danced to DJ Cruz‘s tunes. The organizer Fabian Plüss summed it up: “The great ambience as well as the many exciting guests and contributors showed that our program hit the nail on the head. We are already looking forward to Award Night 2024!”
