Five Star Women Competition Professionals - UK & Ireland

Five Star Women Competition Professionals - UK & Ireland

Dec 12, 2022

The Five Star Professionals Survey celebrates five notable women competition professionals of different levels of experience and seniority - be they professionals who have inspired you, or whose work and/or skillset you have appreciated or were impressed with, across five categories:

  • Academia
  • Economics
  • Enforcement & Judiciary
  • In-House
  • Private Practice


In three Tiers:

  • Guide Stars – trailblazers who have reached lead roles or have otherwise inspired you with their professional expertise beyond the last five years, and who will typically count some 20 years’ experience in the competition field
  • Shining Stars – women competition professionals who stood out and/or who have made notable professional accomplishments (e.g. promotions to senior roles) in the last five years; these women will typically have at least a dozen of years’ experience in the competition field
  • Rising Stars – up & coming women competition professionals who you expect to achieve notable professional landmarks in the next five years


Based on your nominations and votes, the lists of Five Star Professionals in the UK & Ireland are now available - see below. The five finalists of the Survey have been offered as awards artwork by the Brussels-based painter Barbara Pynchon | who dedicated three of her paintings for this project:

  • The ‘September Memory’,  Acrylic on Paper, 2020
  • The ‘Red Stain’,  Acrylic on Paper, 2021
  • The ‘Yellow Rectangle’, Acrylic on Paper, 2020
