Newspress Awards

Twenty-five winners from automotive journalism and PR were announced at the third Newspress Awards at The Brewery in Chiswell Street, London, last night.

The star-studded dinner featured comedian Paul Chowdhry and returning for his third Newspress Awards, ‘voice of the balls’, Alan Dedicoat, who oversaw proceedings.

The evening was completed with the Lifetime Achievement Award, which went to Audi’s Head of PR, Jon Zammett.

Another highlight of the evening was the prestigious Special Newspress Award, which was presented to Sue Baker.

Eight expert judges, each renowned and highly respected in their fields, had their work cut out in 2018 with the exceptional standard of entries across the categories. However, a combination of industry experience and expertise culminated in the shortlist of deserved winners in the Awards, presented during last night’s ceremony.

Other honours on the night included Automotive Editor of the Year, which was awarded to Company Car Today Editor Paul Barker, and the Automotive Consumer Publication Award presented to Modern Classics.
