Judging underway for the 2019 Automotive Heritage Awards

The deadline has passed for entry in the important Automotive Heritage Journalism Competition presented by Kiekert. Thanks to all those who helped get the word out. And, thanks to all those who entered. You nearly doubled the number of entries from last year. Our A-list judging teams are evaluating them now.

We will present the AHA Journalism Awards in 10 categories in the Brembo Media Hospitality Tent at the Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s, Plymouth, MI at 10 AM on Sunday, July 28, show day. The best story in each category gets a beautiful, Alex Buchan-designed trophy. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals are awarded to others worthy of recognition. We honor the stories best told, without regard to media platform. Winners in our other competitions – NAHC’s Future Collectible Vehicle of the Year, the AHA Concept Vehicle of the Year and AHA Lifetime Achievement Award – will be announced there as well.

Dedication of our Lifetime Achievement Trophy.

We dedicated our Lifetime Achievement Award trophy last week at the America’s Automotive Trust-hosted Summit that included movers and shakers in the auto heritage realm talking about the past, present and future of automotive enthusiasm. The trophy’s walnut base was not ready in time so we presented the Alex Buchan-designed bust of Louis Chevrolet that will top the trophy. We expect to have the completed trophy at the Concours. Then, we will formally induct it into the LeMay at a ceremony in September.
