This flagship award is supported by Renault UK and also offers a free membership package from the Guild. It is presented to the entrants judged to have made the most outstanding journalistic effort in newspapers, magazines, onlines, or broadcast media. The judges place particular emphasis on initiative and endeavour.

The award and its predecessor, the Pierre Dreyfus Award, have been sponsored by Renault UK since their inception in 1977. The current format, with awards for the top three places, was introduced in 2012.
