Motoring Research online editor Andrew Brady has been honoured with a major automotive journalism prize after winning the 2016 GoMW Newspress Young Journalist of the Year Award.
The prize, awarded by the Guild of Motoring Writers to recognise motoring journalism talent from those aged 30 or under, is a highly regarded award that rewards rising stars.
Andrew won for a series of features written for Motoring Research, including an exclusive news report on Ecotricity, an interview piece with Volkswagen’s marketing boss – and an expose on the Instagrammers who love rubbish cars.
In a shortlist of very talented writers, Andrew emerged as the winner thanks to his journalistic nous, engaging writing style and sharp focus on delivering what the reader wants.
It’s not the first time Andrew has won a prestigious Guild Award, either: in 2012, he won the Sir William Lyons Award for aspiring motoring journalists.
This long-running award celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016.
