Do you love writing (or talking) about cars?
Would you like to kickstart a career as a motoring writer?
The Midland Group of Motoring Writers has announced details of the 2016 Phil awards for budding motoring journalists. If you’re aged between 12 and 18 and love writing or talking about cars, it’s a chance to make a name for yourself with leading UK car journalists and win some great prizes.
These include: £1000 in travel vouchers and the loan of an Audi of your choice for your parents for a week; a tour of the Aston Martin plant at Gaydon, Warwickshire and a passenger ride with one of the company’s test drivers plus (if you’re aged under 16) a visit to Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands, Surrey for a tutored drive and lunch for yourself and your parents.
Entrants will need to tell a story about cars and travel which entertains the judges. They’ll be looking for creativity and the ability to use the chosen medium to best effect.
The topic for the story is ‘my perfect car and the journey I’d take in it’ and entries can be in any journalistic format, including electronic media.
The closing date for entries is March 31, 2016. You can find full details of the awards on The 2016 Phils page.
