Winners of the 23rd International Automotive Media Awards were announced recently during a ceremony held at the Vinsetta Garage Restaurant in Berkely, Michigan. IAMA’s were presented at a joint event with the North American Concept Vehicle of the Year (NACVOTY) Awards.
The International Automotive Media Competition (IAMC), is a program to recognize and encourage excellence in all forms of automotive media. Gazette columnist “LandSpeed” Louise Ann Noeth submitted three works for review – all three were judged to be worthy of an award.
GOLD – The Demon’s Dozen | Book – published by LandSpeed Productions
SILVER - Counting Down to a Century of Speed | Magazine – Oct 2013 Goodguys Goodtimes Gazette
BRONZE – Counting Down to a Century of Speed | Magazine Graphics – Goodguys Goodtimes Gazette
“I’ve taken part in the IAMA’s since its inception,” explained Noeth, “At first, only as a hopeful entrant, to find out how to improve my writing and photography storytelling skills. Years later, the administrators asked me to judge some categories and I found the volunteer effort to be as rewarding as it was educational – we’ve got some dandy fine motoring media folks at work in the world! When asked to step into the Chief Judge position, after entering three pieces of my own, I accepted only after it was clear my entries would get a beating if they deserved it. That those works finished Gold, Silver and Bronze tells me honest, serious peer review was done. I‘m grateful. As I see it, my readers are the REAL winners because I believe it critical to never stop tweaking the talents the good Lord saw fit to give me.”
Noeth shares the Bronze award with Kevin Reynolds, Art Director at the Goodguys Goodtimes Gazette.
