Young Motor Sport Journalist and Photographer of the Year 2009

The Motor Sports Association, the governing body of UK motor sport, is inviting submissions for the eighth Renault / MSA Young Motor Sport Journalist and Photographer of the Year awards.

 

Established in 2002 with support from Renault UK Limited, these two awards are designed to recognise and encourage the new generation of motor sport reporters and photographers working within UK motor sport. A panel of recognised experts from the sport and the media will consider the applications and the eventual winners will receive their awards at the MSA’s star-studded ‘Night of Champions’ ceremony in January.

 

The winners not only receive recognition as notable talents of the future, but also cheques for £1,000. The winning photographer will also have their pictures displayed on the walls within Motor Sports House.

 

Tim Jackson, Press & PR Director, Renault UK, comments: “Renault is delighted to continue to support these awards. Renault has one of the finest track records in the UK for encouraging and nurturing the very best young talent including engineers and competitors, so it fits very comfortably that we should be involved in this important award for the media.”

 

Colin Hilton, Chief Executive of the MSA, says: “This is a very prestigious prize for any young journalist or photographer aiming to further their career in motor sport. We hope to see as wide a range as possible in the submissions to reflect the huge breadth of UK motor sport and would encourage everyone to apply, whether professional or enthusiastic amateur.”

 

Candidates must have been aged 25 or under on the 1 January 2009 and be able to demonstrate published work involving domestic UK motor sport. They can come from local, regional, specialist or electronic media and are required to submit a minimum of three published articles or photographs from the UK media this year.

 

Application forms are available by email from media@msauk.org and entries must be submitted by 1 December, 2009.
