The shortlist for the Newspress Awards 2024 has been announced, revealing who is in the running to be recognised as the stars of the UK’s automotive journalism and PR industries. 

We have made the shortlist in 3 separate categories – me in the Automotive Rising Star (Journalist) of the Year sponsored by Suzuki, Nick in the Automotive Photographer of the Year, and the Bridge Classic Cars team in the Automotive Video of the Year sponsored by the Marcus Rutherford Foundation.

While the competition is extremely tough in all categories, making the shortlist is an achievement we are all proud of and we look forward to sharing the results when they are announced soon.
