The third edition of Worldwide Championship took place on 10 and 11 May 2019 at van Nelle Fabriek Rotterdam. Specialists from all over the world competed in order to receive the most prestigious title in (permanent) make-up.
Last couple of years we developed a unique judging and point-system, which prevents judges and contestants from any kind of contact during and after the championship. Only floor-judges may enter the championship area to supervise the competition and subtract points from participants in case they work with an unsafe or unsanitary method. Worldwide Championship strives to become the biggest international micropigmentation competition.
Last couple of weeks we have been processing all championship entries and recalculating the points one by one to make sure everything went well. All given points from judges were correct, but since our judging system is anonymous, thus without names written on the latex entries, some mix-ups were made during the placement of the results.
Unfortunately, due this error the winner outcome of Category Platinum Artistic Eyebrow Shading and Platinum in PMU changed:
Category Platinum Artistic Eyebrow Shading
First place / 84 points: Hanna Zakharyeva *UNCHANGED*
Second Place / 72 points: Iryna Nazarava *CHANGED*
Third Place / 70 points: Olga Raevskaya *CHANGED*
Platinum in PMU
First place / 136 points: Aline Luz *UNCHANGED*
Second Place / 125 points: Chiara Colonnelli *UNCHANGED*
Third Place / 98 points: Andreia Ferreira *CHANGED*
We can imagine the confusion, and we’re sorry we put everyone in this situation. To help make it better, we are doing a full analysis on this issue, the root cause, the impact, and how to prevent this from happening again. Thank you for your patience with us as we dig in and get back to making the championship better next edition.
