On March 23 at 1pm (CET) we will announce the shortlisted perfumes and experimental projects with scent for the fourth annual Art and Olfaction Awards in a special presentation at Esxence, in Milan. The announcement will be made by some of our partners and judges: Luca Turin, Helder Suffenplan, Adam Eastwood and Franco Wright, Antonio Gardoni, Christophe Laudamiel and Saskia Wilson-Brown.
Every year, we commission a writer to compose some lines on what scent means to them. In 2015, we invited Los Angeles-based art writer Andrew Berardini to take on the task. What follows are his musings on the humble schnozz.
The online submissions form has closed and here at the #AOAwards we're deep in the hard work of processing the physical submissions, as they come in. We thought that it would be a good time to write a post about exactly what happens when we receive your samples in the mail.
That's a wrap! Submissions for the 4th annual Art and Olfaction Awards are officially closed.
With a marked increase in submissions this year, the 2017 Awards will present a stellar group of perfumers and creative practitioners with scent.
As is our custom, we will post participation statistics within the coming week. In the meantime, our big thanks to all the perfumers and artists who decided to participate, and a massive thanks (in advance!) to our devoted group of judges.
We are now accepting submissions for the fourth annual Art and Olfaction Awards.
Submission for the awards are made through a two-part submission process:
