In-Cosmetics has created the 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The award will honor an outstanding individual whose professional accomplishments have made a significant and lasting impact on the field of cosmetic science.
New for the show, which will take place at the Porte de Versailles in Paris on April 13–15, 2010, the Lifetime Achievement Award is an In-Cosmetics initiative that will run alongside the respected C&T magazine's International Technology Awards. Nominations for the Lifetime Achievement Award can be made at the event Web site.
Lucy Gillam, exhibition director of In-Cosmetics, commented, “2010 is a very special year for In-Cosmetics and what better way to celebrate our 20th anniversary than by recognizing the achievements of the greatest minds within our industry. The winner will be decided by public vote, so by launching this new Lifetime Achievement Award, we are offering the industry a platform to recognize an individual who has led and inspired those around them throughout their career and is a shining example of why this industry is still strong and growing year-on-year.”
The In-Cosmetics Lifetime Achievement Award nominations will close on Jan. 15, 2010, and the top six nominees will be announced on Jan. 25, 2010. An online public vote for the winner will then open and remain open until March 31, 2010. The winner will subsequently be announced at an awards ceremony in Paris on April 14, 2010.
