Part of our behind-the-scenes marketing is the chasing of those C&SC awards to decorate our bookshelves!

Seriously, the value is that when we support these awards by entering them, we are also supporting the event. This doesn't go unnoticed and helps the rapport we have with the organisers, which in turn helps with the procurement of nice stand spaces and locations each year. All hangs together see? :grin:

This year things have changed. With the sad loss of David Evans back in March (David ran the awards and was very much the life and soul of them), Classic and Sportscar have streamlined the nomination process to a predominantly on-line application and are discouraging voluminous 'paper' submissions. All right and proper in our digital age, but what about our nice touchy feely mag that Pete slaves over thrice a year?
They thankfully make an exception, so the last two copies of Two Four accompanied our nomination.

The much briefer nomination wording is attached for your interest. I've also entered 'Club of the Year' as well as 'Magazine of the Year' this time. Again a brief written document I feel duty bound to share with you as I've named names! :scared: The real message for this award is communicated by the ten pdf's of this years newsletters to date, they say it all. Seriously, have a skim through these mini magazines archived on the Publications page that Pete crafts every month and it is undeniable, this is one hell of a club.

Wish us luck :hope:

Should have gone for the "Best Submission" award as well .... that wasn't supposed to sound S&M related!

Good work Philip! Great to see the under appreciated word 'thrice' getting a good airing.

We didn't win an award this year, can't win 'em all!
It's important to keep entering though, as said in the piece below, it fuels momentum of the Classic car movement;

As you say, can't win them all! Standards were high everywhere this year, good to see the classic car movement is doing well.
