£500 plus trophy

Introduced in 2020, this award mergers the previous Campaigning Journalism and Safety awards, the scope of this category is wide and entries should focus on areas of safety such as road and motorway conditions or design; safety of road users whether in vehicles, on cycles or pedestrians; cycling; the environment including pollution and new technology; infrastructure and maintenance; car parking; young drivers; legislation. The judges will be looking for a piece of writing that provokes, challenges or encourages real change among authorities, car makers and road-users in general and which shows depth of passion and commitment for the safety of all whether inside or outside a vehicle.
