Lifetime Achievement Award

What is the Lifetime Achievement Award?

“Beginning in 1968, the Lifetime Achievement Award has been given to an individual who has, in the eyes of his or her peers, made a substantial contribution to the craft for a period of twenty-five or more years, and has contributed to the craft through the development and inspiration of automotive journalism’s next generation.”

Criteria & Submissions

The Lifetime Achievement Award, historically presented by the International Automotive Media Competition, had honored a person within the broad definition of automotive journalism. This new version will narrow the focus to those whose are substantially involved in covering the stories and subjects related to antique, classic and collectible automobiles, automotive history and culture and related topics. Jurors for this award will be former winners, as much as possible.

Nominations

Nominations will be received both through this Website and generated by the committee. Nominations should include a brief biography, list of accomplishments and accolades earned over his/her career. Nominator should explain why this person should receive the award. Self-nominations are welcome. No fee is required for the nomination.

Awards & Winner

The physical award is a sculpture by renowned fine artist, Alex Buchan – a bust of Louis Chevrolet. A larger version of the sculpture will be ensconced in a special display at the LeMay – America’s Car Museum, in Tacoma, Washington. The museum display will have previous winners listed as well.
