So the Institute for Art and Olfaction is going to start having annual award ceremonies for independent perfume companies. Any independent perfume company can submit 2013 perfume releases for the competition!
I got an email from the Institute about the open call for submissions. Submit your application here by January 24, 2014 to compete!
The first annual Art and Olfaction Awards will be at the Goethe Institute in Los Angeles on April 25, 2014. The two categories will be Artisan and Independent.
Judges include Luca Turin, artist Marcos Lutyens, indie perfumers Sherri Sebastian, Sarah Horowitz-Thran, and Brent Leonesio, perfumers Christophe Laudamiel, Mandy Aftel, designer Stephen Sagmeister among other perfumery and art experts. LuckyScent is also judging and helping to sponsor the event.
