Sumit Bhasin, global leader of innovation, P&G Prestige Products, accepted the 2011 award on behalf of the company from Nathalie Grosdidier, executive director, Luxe Pack. Special Correspondent to Vanity Fair Amy Fine Collins hosted this year’s gala on May 17. About 250 people attended.

The annual Art of Packaging Award Gala—which has brought in more than $3.5 million over the past 22 years—supports the Marc Rosen Scholarship and Education Fund for Packaging by Design and raises funds for scholarships for graduating package design students at Pratt. The Marc Rosen Scholarship and Education Fund for Packaging by Design is the only scholarship in the world available to college students looking to pursue careers in cosmetics and package design. Each year, the scholarship is supported by the cosmetic industry at The Art of Packaging Award Gala, an event that attracts the top-tier of New York City’s multi-billion dollar cosmetics industry. At Pratt, Rosen teaches a course on cosmetic and fragrance package design, which is the only one of its kind in the world.
