  • Best Motoring Magazine, Digital Magazine Awards 2012
  • PFPR Editor of the Year and Classic Writer of the Year, Guild of Motoring Writers Awards 2012
  • Young Writer of the Year, Guild of Motoring Writers Awards 2012


Continuing Dennis’s winning streak this year Dennis’s motoring division picked up several more awards last week at the Digital Magazine Awards 2012 and the Guild of Motoring Writers Awards 2012.


evo scooped up the award for Best Motoring Magazine at the Digital Magazine Awards, beating Motor Trend from the USA, Redwood Publishing and Haymarket. The Digital Magazine Awards are international awards celebrating the best magazines, individuals and advertisers from the digital publishing industry.


Geoff Love, Publisher of evo and Octane, said, “For evo to scoop the Best Motoring Magazine Award is testament to a great team, and this adds to the recognition given to the brand earlier in the year by iMonitor that ranked it as one of the world’s top twenty magazine apps.”


David Lillywhite, Editor of Octane, won two prestigious awards at the internationally recognised Guild of Motoring Writers Awards. David was awarded PFPR Editor of the year, for his ability to balance the demands of publishers and readers whilst making critical decisions for his publication. And just a few moments later, David was awarded Classic Writer of the Year after being chosen for the best example of an article on the world of classic vehicles.


Jamie Fretwell, products writer at Auto Express & CarBuyer, took home the award for Young Writer of the Year for a second time since 2010. The award recognises Jamie’s ability to demonstrate a combination of thorough research and well-crafted journalism in magazines and online media.


James Burnay, Publisher of Auto Express and CarBuyer said, “We are delighted that Jamie Fretwell has picked up the Young Writer of the Year award for the second time. This reflects well on Auto Express as the market leading motoring brand delivering all of the motoring news and reviews first”
