Our 2022 Perfume Bottle Design Competition welcomed an amazing selection of 38 designs submitted from 6 different countries, and ranging in styles from traditional to contemporary, sublime to whimsical, and in a variety of mediums, colors, techniques and aesthetics.  The winners are selected each year by the attendees at the annual IPBA Convention.

While ‘vintage’ may rule the days of Convention, the IPBA recognizes that every gorgeous bottle was at one time a sparkling new work of art.  And from there the IPBA PERFUME BOTTLE DESIGN COMPETITION was born.  The competition is free to enter, and is open to anyone who designs and creates an original perfume bottle or original perfume bottle sketch.  The design may utilize any medium – glass, metal, pottery, etc. – and its creation must fall between the designated design period between December 1 and March 1 prior to the Annual Convention, which is when the final entries are judged by ballot vote by members attending the convention.  The top three are awarded cash prizes.

Our 2022 winners include Gustavo Santana, first place for “Teal Drop”; Holly Gage, second place for “Floral”; and Elaine Hyde, third place for “Raindrop” (click individual image to enlarge).  Congratulate our winners on their beautiful perfume bottle designs!
