Ouddict members will have the chance to shortlist Oud oils from Ouddict Resident Artisans only that have been on sale at any time in 2019. The format is as follows: 1. There will be two categories. Wild and Organic. An Oud of the Year will be voted separately for each category in parallel. 2. The search for the Oud of the Year starts with a nomination by members, a 1st Round poll and Final Round poll. Nominations start on the 12th December and remain open until the 19th December. 3. A member may only vote if they have bought the Oud or sampled it and members must have been registered before December 2019 in order to take part. We will be making checks to enforce this. 4. A maximum of up to 5 Ouds for each category can be nominated for inclusion by members for inclusion in the first round poll. You do not have to nominate 5 Oud oils per category, but you cannot nominate more than 5 per category. This is to keep the exercise manageable and prevent “spamming”. 5. The 1st Round Poll will be created from the nominated list of Ouds and members can vote on the 1st Round from the 19th to the 25th December. 6. A Final Round will be created from the 1st Round results and a vote held from the 25th December to the 1st January. 7. The Oud of the Year will be announced on 2nd January, 2020. 8. Any member who does not follow these rules will be barred from any further involvement in the Oud of the Year 2019 vote. No exceptions. No excuses. Note for Vendors and Vendor Associates 1. You can take part in the Oud of the Year 2. You cannot nominate your own products.
