The Art and Olfaction Awards judges are drawn from various creative industries, with diverse fields of interest, backgrounds and specialisations. We believe that this diversity creates a stronger, more inventive and more accurate jury.

PLEASE NOTE

The judges for the independent and artisan categories will be reviewing the submissions blindly. Your submission will be tracked by a number, and nothing else.  All they will see to contextualize what they are smelling is your small text describing your intention for the scent.

The judges for the experimental award category will not be reviewing the projects blindly. This is because the judges will require supporting material in order to effectively assess the project, and that material will most likely contain identifying information. However, in order to maintain fairness and impartiality, any judges with personal connections to submitted projects will not be able to score those projects.

Please respect our judges’ time and privacy, and refrain from contacting them about your submission.
