The Deadline for Journalism Entries Is Upon Us!

Midnight EDST, Friday, May 31 
Entry Fee: $50

The deadline to enter the important Automotive Heritage Journalism Competition is coming up Friday. This will be your last reminder from this source. The Awards will be presented in the Brembo Media Hospitality Tent at the Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s, Plymouth, MI on July 28. Entries are judged by a team of A-list automotive journalists. The best stories in each category get a beautiful, Alex Buchan-designed trophy. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals are awarded to others worthy of recognition. We’ll honor the stories best told, without regard to media platform.


  • Best Car Culture Story
  • Best Automotive Travel or Adventure Story
  • Best Personality Profile
  • Best Facility Story – Museum, Race Track, Proving Grounds, etc.
  • Best Marque-Specific Story
  • Best Heritage Motorsport Story

There is something special about being an “award-winning” journalist. The Automotive Heritage Journalism Competition will honor the best auto heritage-related work presented in 2018.

While the teams that manage our other distinct awards – the AHA Concept Vehicle of the Year, the NAHC’s Future Collectible Vehicle of the Year and the AHA Lifetime Achievement Award work independently, they welcome nominations from our audience. Deadline for those is also midnight EDST, May 31st.

Dedication of our Lifetime Achievement Trophy. 
As most of you know, our permanent AHA Lifetime Achievement trophy will reside at the LeMay, America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, WA, a part of America’s Automotive Trust. The AAT’s Detroit representative, Diane Flis-Schneider, is hosting a “Summit” of organizations and individuals within the automotive heritage community in early June where we will be dedicating our trophy.
