Rising Star awards-shortlist 2016-banner

We are extremely proud to announce our shortlist for WeAreTheCity’s Top 100 Rising Star Awards 2016.

The calibre of entries across all categories was extremely high this year and a true testament to the amazing amount of female talent within the pipeline across the UK and Northern Ireland.

On behalf of Barclays and our supporting sponsors, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who nominated their Rising Stars for this year’s awards. We received over 950 nominations spanning 260 companies from across the UK and Northern Ireland, which was treble the amount of entries received last year.

We are very much looking forward to celebrating our shortlisted individuals’ achievements at an event kindly sponsored by Bloomberg on the 17 May 2016.

The shortlist will now be judged by an additional set of expert judges, and the winners of our Rising Star awards for 2016 will be announced on 6 June and celebrated at our winner’s event at Barclays on 30 June.

We would like to personally thank our shortlist judges: Paul Sesay, Simone Roche, Jo Gaglani, Mairi McHaffie, Nicola Horlick, Helene Reardon-Bond, Duncan McRae and Yvonne Thompson.  They all gave their valuable time to assemble our shortlist and to help WeAreTheCity to recognise the fantastic achievements of all of our amazing nominees.

Supporters of our nominees are now able to show our shortlisted nominees their support by casting their votes. The vote count does not determine the winners.  Please note there is no public voting for our Champions category.  Votes can be cast via the shortlist pages.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish our shortlisted nominees the very best of luck in the final round of judging.
