Austin Healey Magazine Wins Journalism Award
Moss Motors announced in August of 1990 that Austin-Healey Magazine had been awarded their grand prize for British motoring journalism in the annual competition sponsored by Moss Motors for the first time this year. The award was presented to Gary Anderson, then president of Austin-Healey Club, Pacific Centre, and editor of the magazine during 1988 and 1989, at the California Healey Week/West Coast Meet in Santa Maria. It was also announced that Healeys Northwest, published by the Austin-Healey Club of Oregon and Cascade, published by the Cascade AustinHealey Club of Washington, won second and third awards, respectively, in the Austin-Healey Club category.
In presenting the award, Moss management noted the magazine's high standard of excellence in content, presentation, design, and overall value to members. Moss established the awards to recognize and encourage quality in the magazines and newsletters published by British car owners' clubs. The competition was announced in Moss Motoring last summer with requests to club editors to submit their 1989 publications for judging. Moss reported that it received over 200 entries from clubs representing every major British marque. Entries were judged by a panel of experts, including editors from two of the major U.S. motoring magazines, and representatives from printing, publishing, and design in Southern California.
In accepting the award, Gary noted that the editor of a club magazine can only work with the material that his or her club members provide, and builds on the developments of previous editors. He emphasized that he was accepting the award on behalf of all the contributors and the previous editors of Austin-Healey Magazine.
