Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD) has opened the competition for its sixth annual Cosmetic Innovators of The Year (CITY) Awards. To be eligible for a CITY Award, a company must be a member of ICMAD and follow criteria established for each award category. All products must have first shipped and have had marketing and advertising programs initiated, between April 1, 2008 and March 31, 2009. The deadline for entries is April 17.

“Whether it’s a new branded product, packaging design or advertising campaign, the expanded CITY Awards are designed to honor the entrepreneurial spirit,” said ICMAD executive director Penni Jones. “ICMAD member companies deserve a greater opportunity to showcase their creative talents and be recognized for their innovative contributions to the beauty industry.”

The 6th annual CITY Awards will be presented during the ICMAD annual meeting and dinner on June 11 in New York City.

Seven CITY Awards will be presented in the following categories for product and packaging innovations—personal care; color cosmetic, skin care, professional; skin care, mass (department/specialty/discount/drug store); personal care package design; color cosmetic package design; and skin care package design.

In addition to product and packaging innovations, two 2009 CITY Awards will be presented for marketing and advertising innovations (print advertising, trade or consumer; and internet advertising or website design).
