The community vote has now ended and it’s time for the interview stage.
We are extremely grateful of everyone who has shown interest or voted in this years community vote for the Motor-Vision Awards 2018.
We received a record breaking 6898 votes in total. A huge thank you to everyone who voted!
What is the Motor-Vision Awards?
For those who don’t already know, the Motor-Vision Awards is a unique motoring awards scheme that offers cash sponsorship of up to £20,000 to motoring enthusiasts with a dream.
There’s no catch. If someone’s dream is big enough, we’ve got the cash to help see them through it, the weirder or more unusual the idea the better!
Perhaps it’s a road trip someone always wanted to take, a record attempt, a restoration, a challenge, a charity project or something we simply can’t even imagine!?
Motor-Vision Awards 2018
The entries for this year’s Motor-Vision Awards opened on the 1st May 2018 and we have received a huge number of intriguing and unique applications since then.
Entries closed on the 14th August 2018. The Motor-Vision panel then shortlisted 7 applicants who they believed have what it takes to win the Motor-Vision Awards 2018!
After selecting these applicants, the panel launched the community voting stage.
What is the Community Voting Stage?
This stage allowed the motoring community to have their say on who they think should be fast-tracked into the Motor-Vision Awards finals.
The candidate with the most votes will be fast-tracked into the finals, where they will be interviewed by a panel of expert motoring professionals.
Along with the fast-tracked applicant, 4 other shortlisted candidates will also join them in the interview stage.
The results of the community vote won’t affect the judges decision on the 4 further applicants; this is decided using a number of factors.
So a total of 5 of the 7 original shortlisted applicants will make it through to the final interview stage.
Finalists will be announced by the Motor-Vision judges later next week. Be sure to follow us on social media and subscribe to our e-newsletter to be keep up-to-date.
