The 2019 Motorsport UK Young Journalist and Photographer of the Year awards are open to entries from promising young members of the motorsport media aged 30 and under.

Established in 2002, the awards are designed to encourage the new generation of reporters and photographers working within UK motorsport. An expert panel will consider the applications, with each winner receiving a trophy and a cheque for £1,000 at Motorsport UK’s Night of Champions ceremony at the Royal Automobile Club in January. Winners will also receive one year’s provisional membership of the Guild of Motoring Writers (GoMW), the world’s largest association of automotive editorial professionals.

Candidates must have been aged 30 or under on 1 January 2019. They must be able to demonstrate published work involving UK motorsport and are required to submit a minimum of three published articles or five photographs from 2018/19. Outlets can be specialist or general, national or regional, and online or offline.

Application forms are available here and entries must be received by the Motorsport UK Communications Team no later than Monday 9 December 2019.
