There is only a fortnight left to go until the closing date for the Newspress Awards – the annual event that recognises excellence in automotive journalism and PR.
It’s simple to enter. Those wishing to enter in the editorial categories can submit work into whichever they wish, but with only one entry per category.
Journalists, photographers and videographers can put forward their own work in a number of specific categories via the ‘Enter’ tab on the Newspress Awards website https://www.newspressuk.com/awards. Entries will be accepted until 11.59pm on May 31st, 2022.
We have also included a new category for 2022: EV Writer and we also welcome entries from those in the broadcast media: links to video or MP4 attachments can be uploaded.
Staffers and freelancers are equally welcome to apply, and all entries will be judged on merit. The awards are judged by a wholly independent judging panel made up of experienced media experts.
For the first time, the Awards will be combined with Newspress LIVE! – an all-new event that will feature a selection of cars. And to celebrate a plethora of diverse machinery, there will be a new award – that of Star Car – where judges from insurance company Footman James will pick out a vehicle owned by a journalist or PR that best demonstrates the joy of owning a classic car.
If you are interested in putting your car forward for the Star Car Award, please send car details to email@example.com. We have limited places in the Star Car Arena, so please do let us know as soon as possible.
The PR awards for Press Office, PR, Rising PR Star are on a vote-only basis, with votes cast by Newspress-registered journalists only. In these three categories the individuals with the most votes will win. Anyone wishing to put forward candidates for the Lifetime Achievement Award are welcome to do, so and can leave supporting information on the online entry form.
Winners will be announced during a special awards ceremony coinciding with the Newspress LIVE! at Bicester Heritage, Oxfordshire, on Thursday 21 July 2022.
Places are filling up fast at the awards ceremony, so if interested in tickets please get in touch quickly.
