Newspress Awards logo 2016

Entries are open for the first Newspress Awards, which will honour the best in automotive journalism and PR.


To take part in the awards, journalists, photographers and videographers can put forward their own work in a number of specific categories via the Newspress Awards website, at Entries will be accepted until 11.59pm on 21 February.


Journalists and photographers do not need to be nominated, they can simply enter. Entrants can submit work into whatever category they wish, but with only one entry per category. The PR awards, for Press Office, PR and 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.


The Newspress awards will be judged by an independent judging panel of experts, from disciplines entirely relevant to the area in which the entrants currently work. Staffers and freelancers are equally welcome to apply and all will be judged on merit.


The awards will be presented at a black-tie dinner at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London, on the evening of Thursday, 17 March with a celebrity entertainer and provide some great networking opportunities.


Manufacturers or PR agencies wishing to purchase tickets or tables should contact Jackie Allard at Newspress,
