Feature writers compete for £500 prize in GOMW awards

Feature writers have the chance to win a £500 prize and a trophy in the Guild of Motoring Writers Awards.

Remarketing group BCA is sponsoring the award and entrants are encouraged to seek out their best general feature on any aspect of motoring published between 15th December 2020 and the entry deadline of 30th September.

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.

Judges for the BCA Feature Writer of the Year Award are looking for the best general feature (not regular column) dealing with any aspect of the motoring scene by a Guild member. The judges are looking for a feature that takes a fresh or novel approach to a topic and one which demonstrates well researched material that is both entertaining and informative.

Candidates are required to enter just one feature for consideration. Finalists will be announced in mid-January, with an awards ceremony broadcast online in February to announce the winners.

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]
