There is only a month 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 Entries will be accepted until 11.59pm on March 4, 2018.

We have also included new category: Motorsport 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.

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 Special Newspress Award or Lifetime Achievement Award are welcome to do, so and can leave supporting information on the online entry form.

Winners will be announced during a gala dinner at Quaglino’s restaurant in London, on Thursday, March 28, 2019.

Newspress would like to express thanks to the sponsors of the 2019 awards, MotorEasy, SEAT UK, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and KIA UK.

Manufacturers or PR agencies wishing to purchase tickets/tables or sponsor individual category awards should contact Jackie Allard at Newspress,

*As with the 2018 awards there will be a number of fully branded sponsorship opportunities allowing automotive and associated companies to put their brand in front of the UK’s elite motoring media and OEMs.
