Abstract: The B[e] phenomenon has both photometric and spectroscopic signatures. Photometrically it manifests itself by a large infrared excess due to radiation of the circumstellar dust that can serve as a selection criterion for finding new candidates in large photometric databases. We searched all-sky catalogs, which contain optical and near-IR magnitudes, and selected over 100 candidates. Nearly 40 objects from this sample have been observed spectroscopically and photometrically in the optical and near-IR region. We present a list of those with detected hot star features and forbidden line emission and suggest their possible nature and evolutionary status.
