SI Swimsuit Launches First Best of Awards

The 2023 issue of the magazine will include Swim’s favorite products and places.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit is the go-to for fashion, swimwear, travel and women’s lifestyle advice. It only makes sense that the franchise would launch a Best of Awards program. Brands across a number of select categories can now submit for the chance to have their products and places featured by our roster of cover models, expert makeup artists, hairstylists and editors.

Winners will be announced in spring of 2023 with the annual SI Swimsuit magazine release, as well as on social media channels. The categories are as follows:
