ICMAD is calling for submissions to the awards, which recognize future industry leaders and product innovation, and entries can be delivered until May 22nd, 2015.
This year the award winners will be announced at the Cosmoprof North America in Las Vegas, where ICMAD is holding its CITY Award ceremony at the Mandalay Bay convention Centre, on July 13th.

The awards are focused on small- to medium-sized companies, as well as start-ups, and in the past winners have included names such as Murad Skin Care, NYX Cosmetics, Orly International and Lux Beauty Group.
