Finalists were announced earlier this month. The competition is stiff this year and applications were up a whopping 180 percent, according to the Association. The winners will be selected by a panel of industry experts, who casted their votes based on innovative products, packaging, and advertising / marketing concepts from 2011. Janet Gurwitch, founder and former CEO of Laura Mercier Cosmetics, will be the keynote and special presenter at the awards event; along with Pam Busiek, CEO and president of ICMAD. The winners also will take part in the first CITY 2012 Beauty Trunk Show. This initiative will give the winners another platform to display their award-winning products at national retailers. The retailers include Ron Robinson, Apothia,, C.O. Bigelow, Henri Bendel New York and Skins 6|2. The CITY Beauty Trunk Show will take place simultaneously at all retailers in late August.
