Launched in 2019 at the sixth Art and Olfaction Awards, this discretionary award is given on an annual basis to one outstanding person who shows proof of exceptional vision in artisan, independent and experimental practices with scent.
The Septimus Piesse Visionary Award is given on an annual basis to an outstanding person showing proof of exceptional vision with regards to how scent is used, developed, or imagined.
The winner of the Septimus Piesse Visionary Award is decided at the sole disrection of the board of directors of the Institute for Art and Olfaction, with input from the judges, award partners and colleagues in the industry.
We also accept community nominations, which you may send in at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that nominations do not in any way imply that the person nominated will win. Further to that, the number of nominations will not impact the decision of who will win.
The winner will be announced yearly, at the Art and Olfaction Awards.
