Entries for the 2020 Newspress Awards honouring excellence in automotive journalism and PR opened on 2 January. 

It’s simple to enter. 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 www.newspress.co.uk/awards.

Entries will be accepted until 11.59pm on 16 March 16.As with the 2019 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. 

Those wishing to enter in the editorial categoriescan submit work into whichever they wish, but with only one entry per category. 

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 of the Year 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. 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 gala dinner at Quaglino’s restaurant in London, on Thursday, 23 April 2020.
