North star competition 2024


Win a piece worth up to £1,000!

Voting for the North Star Competition is now open.

We will be announcing our winner soon at the end of the show.

Our exhibitors have entered some stunning pieces of jewellery and silverware this year and you can view them all now on Instagram. Make sure to vote for your favourite maker to be in with a chance of winning their Star Piece.

If you missed it last year, here is a reminder of how it works and how to enter:


Each participating exhibitor has selected a piece of their work worth up to £1,000 to enter into this year’s North Star competition. You can view all the Star Pieces on our Instagram account and on the Instagram feed on our website.


During the Fair, exhibitors will mark their chosen piece in their cabinet by placing a star next to it. As you make your way around the Fair, look out for the Star Piece in each cabinet. If you spot one you like the look of, why not ask the maker to take it out of the cabinet for you? Try it on!


To be in with chance of winning your favourite Star Piece, all you have to do is fill in our quick online entry form. Entries will close at 4pm on Sunday 14th July. A winner will be selected at random after the Fair – if your name is selected, you’ll win the Star Piece you voted for!


Browse all the Star Pieces on the Instagram app or here on the Goldsmiths North website. Look out for the hashtags #GN2024 #GNNORTHSTAR
