The Motor Sports Association (MSA) is inviting submissions for the 2014 Renault MSA Young Motor Sport Journalist and Photographer of the Year awards, which are now open to those aged 30 and under.

Established in 2002 with support from Renault UK Limited, the awards are designed to recognise and encourage the new generation of motor sport reporters and photographers working within UK motor sport.

A panel of recognised experts from the sport and the media will consider the applications. Each winner will receive a trophy and a cheque for £1,000 at the MSA’s Night of Champions ceremony at the Royal Automobile Club in January.

In addition the winning photographer’s images will be framed and hung at both the Royal Automobile Club and Motor Sports House, and will appear in MSA magazine. The two winners will also receive a year’s provisional membership of the Guild of Motoring Writers, the world’s largest organisation of automotive editorial professionals. Read More »
