RM Sotheby’s to reward classic vehicle journalism in GOMW awards

RM Sotheby’s is showing its support for journalists covering classic vehicles by sponsoring the Classic Writer of the Year category in the 2021 Guild of Motoring Writers Awards.

The RM Sotheby’s Classic Writer of the Year is open to Guild members and will be presented to the journalist offering the best example of an article or feature (but not books) reporting on the world of classic vehicles of any age.

Entries should demonstrate an extensive knowledge of the subject and an interest in promoting the cause of classic motoring, whether it be cars, motorcycles or commercial vehicles.

Judges will be looking for material which shows a genuine enthusiasm for the subject and that is both engaging and informative for the reader.

Entries are open for submissions until 30th September, and there are 11 other categories, with a total of 13 awards and 15 cash prizes available. Up to three pieces of work will be accepted per entrant, and the best of these will be selected to create a shortlist of finalists.

Finalists will be announced in mid-November, with an awards ceremony held at a black tie dinner at the Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall, on 2nd 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 via email: [email protected]
