Cummins to sponsor Guild CV award

Entry will be open to all commercial vehicle and, for the first time, bus writers, including those who are not Guild members. Cummins sponsorship includes an increased cash prize of £750 for the winning entry. The winner will also be offered complimentary membership of the Guild for one year.

In common with other Guild awards, entrants will be asked to submit three pieces of published work for consideration by the judges. The theme for 2014 will be, ‘features which promote the more efficient use of buses and trucks (over 7.5 tonnes GVW)’. All submissions must be made electronically and entry forms will be available this summer when the 2014 Guild of Motoring Writers Awards entry forms are released. Entry will close on 30 September 2014.

The award was launched at the Motor Industry Public Affairs Association (MIPAA) CV Show Media Reception on Monday 28th April. The reception took place on the eve of the CV Show 2014 at the NEC, supported by the Road Haulage Association. Visiting media attended the reception, joining MIPAA members and representatives from the RHA before the Show opened to visitors on Tuesday 29th April.
