CDN contributors Nick Hull and Nick Gibbs have both won prestigious awards from the UK’s Guild of Motoring Writers – following in the footsteps of our own Lem Bingley, who won one of the categories last year and was shortlisted again this year. Marked by a ceremony at the exceedingly grand Royal Automobile Club in London’s Pall Mall, the annual awards recognise excellence in motoring journalism, photography and broadcasting.
Nick Hull was presented with the Market Engineering Automotive Technology Journalism Award for his series of articles in CDN on the principles of car design, entitled ‘Bones, Muscles and Graphics’. It looked at how car designers evaluate automotive design, what they see that non-designers are missing and exactly what are the components of the criteria that they’re employing. If you want to revisit the prize-winning series, and you should, Part 1 is here, Part 2 is here and Part 3 is here (CDN subscribers only).
Nick Gibbs, who writes for CDN and our Interior Motives magazine regularly (here’s his recent and rather good in-depth piece with Ford’s Joel Piaskowski on the Focus) won the Prova PR Business Writer of the Year
Lem Bingley, who edits Interior Motives and writes for CDN (here’s his excellent interview with Opel’s Mark Adams) was shortlisted for Business Writer of the Year. Lem won the Technology Journalism award last year.
We’d like to congratulate all of them, while trying hard, and failing, not to feel a little smug about the quality of our writing talent.
