The yearly Luxury and Creation Talent Awards conferred by Le Centre du Luxe et de la Création are divided into ten specialised categories: Audacity, Well-Being, Elegance, Harmony, Innovation, Inventiveness, Originality, Rarity, Seductiveness and Management.

The 2018 awards were bestowed upon winners during a gala soirée on 30 January, the institution's 16th edition. The joint winner in the Audacity category is the Italian glass maker of excellence, Simone Crestani, who was honoured for the bold intricacy of his creations inspired by nature and molecules. 

The special prize for entrepreneurship in the artistic professions, sponsored by the Cologni Foundation for the Métiers d’Art, went to Carlo Apollo, a highly skilled marquetry inlayer who turns antique wood into works of art with the function of flooring and decoration for prestigious rooms, infusing them with new life.
