Submissions are open!
The submissions for the tenth awards are now open! The online form will remain open through December 31, 2023. This year’s awards are open to perfumers and projects that came to market (or are coming to market) between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2023. As always, submitting to the awards requires a few easy steps: filling out the online form, and sending in a sample.
The 10th Art and Olfaction Awards will take place in June, 2024.
2024 will mark the tenth year of the Art and Olfaction Awards (AOA) - a big milestone for the community of independent, artisan and experimental perfumers that the awards mechanism serves. Over the years, the awards have progressed from a small event of 80 to an international celebration that reaches thousands. Alongside the awards themselves, the organizing team has produced and presented core programs designed to expand awareness of and appreciation for independent work with scent. These programs, the Experimental Scent Summit, Scent Week LA, and the Bienial Scent Fair, have become an important marker of a greater shift towards indie and experimental practices with perfume. It’s a great olfactory renaissance, and the team behind the Art and Olfaction Awards are proud to do their part.
For our tenth edition, we will be returning to Europe, holding the awards in the beautiful city of Lisbon, Portugal. We have much more to share, but for now, we're starting the process with the first step: submissions!
