    The entries were pored over by a panel of judges, headed by stylist Courtney Smith, a representative from Longines and Evoke.ie. Three finalists were chosen and asked to create and showcase their designs at Longines Irish Champions Weekend, the winner, Rosemary O' Connor was announced at the final in the parade ring at The Curragh, taking away a prize valued at €10,000 including an elegant Longines timepiece.
