The Perfumed Plume Awards, which will return in 2017, has appointed two new board members:
- Sheherazade Chamlou, senior vice president sales and marketing at SGD
- Bart Schmidt, managing partner, Brands with Purpose
"In addition, we have made changes to the criteria in two categories," said co-founder Mary Ellen Lapsansky. "In the Digital Media category, we will accept international submissions as long as the site has a strong U.S. following and the editorials are written in the English language. In the Fragrance Book category, submissions will be open to non-fiction as well as fiction, as long as the fragrance content in the non-fiction books is accurate and informative."
"We are so excited to go into our second year and look forward to receiving a maximum number of submissions to really fire up the competitive juices now that we have established the Perfumed Plume Awards as an iconic symbol of media excellence, viewed as a 'must-win' for writers focused on in-depth fragrance story-telling,” said co-founder Lyn Leigh.
Submissions will be accepted through the Perfumed Plume Awards website portal starting Tuesday, November 1, 2016 through Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
