We are thrilled to announce that Sebastian Fischenich has agreed to come on as a finalist judge for the 2015 Art and Olfaction Awards. He will join Luca Turin, Mandy Aftel, Sarah Horowitz-Thran and Miriam Vareldzis in assessing the finalists in the Artisan and Independent categories - and establishing the winners.
We realized that with the holidays coming up, everyone is a little more frazzled than usual. So, we're extending the postage date to Monday Dec 22, by the end of the day. Be sure to get your packages in the mail by then.
Don't forget that submission forms are still due before midnight, Friday Dec 19.
We hope that helps give everyone a little respite, and - as always - we are here for any questions, worries, comments or concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are little vials objects of desire? Or are they appealing merely as carriers for the joys that are to be found inside?
We suspect the latter. However, we've nonetheless found that we enjoy looking at the little bottles everyone is sending in... maybe a little too much. Please humor us as we explore our current glut of vials with some photos for people who really really love fragrant, colorful liquids in small bottles. It's a vial fetish, and we're indulging ourselves.
It's the last stretch, and the submissions are coming in steadily. Just a reminder that there are only six days left to get the form filled and the vials in the mail. Here are the relevant links: Don't tarry!
