£500 prize for editors in the GOMW awards

Editor members of the Guild of Motoring Writers have just eight days left to submit entries for the Bentley Editor of the Year Award.

First presented in 2010 this award goes to the editor who demonstrates they have balanced the demands of publishers and readers while nurturing journalistic talent and successfully making the critical decisions that turn a good publication into a great one.

The judges are looking for strong leadership, innovations in the approach to editing and a keen understanding of the target audience and their requirements as well as supporting the development of their staff.

Where appropriate, hard copies of the product can be submitted by post. If you choose this option, please forward two hard copies of each submission to:

Richard Netherwood, Honorary Secretary, Guild of Motoring Writers, 539 Manchester Road, Linthwaite, Huddersfield HD7 5QX.

There are other categories with cash prizes available, and finalists will be announced in mid-November, with an awards ceremony to be held at a gala dinner at the Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall, on 2 December.

The entry form, information about the awards, and the rules for entry can be found at

Candidates are advised to read the online instructions carefully before entering. If you have any questions about the entry procedure, contact Honorary Secretary, Richard Netherwood email: [email protected]
