There’s still time to apply for the inaugural Workshop Magazine Awards

There’s still time to apply for the inaugural Workshop Magazine Awards

31 August 2017

This year will see the inaugural Workshop Magazine Awards, sponsored by the IGA, take place on Monday 11th December.

The awards have been designed to celebrate every part of the service and repair industry and shine a light on the best of the sector, as it can often seem as though many of the great garages and technicians within the automotive industry can go completely unrecognised. With the ceremony taking place at The Brewery in London and motorsport legend Johnny Herbert at the helm, it’s set to be a great night for everyone involved – winner or not!

Why Enter?

If you’re a winner you’ll of course receive a trophy to display at your business, plus extensive magazine and online coverage, and video interviews. The award will also provide the opportunity for you to create your own customer focused articles or press release for local newspapers, your website or social media pages, ensuring that customers will come flocking to your garage.

With five regional Independent Garage of the Year awards up for grabs (and one overall winner), independent garages finally have a chance to showcase themselves and enjoy some well-deserved recognition. With such an exciting opportunity to be the first ever winner to hoist a trophy across the many categories, we’re sure that independent garages across the nation will be keen to apply and put their garage to the test.

How to Apply

For more information about each category you can click here or take a look at the latest copy of Workshop Magazine.

If you’d like to apply for an award or nominate a garage, you can click here to complete the nomination form via the internet. Give as much detail as possible for each nomination you make, as it really helps the judging process, but it’s ok to leave categories blank.

If you’d like to apply by postal nomination, you can find a nomination form in your latest copy of Workshop magazine. Photocopy the page if you’d like to send more than one nomination, and pop them in the post.

All applications are free and easy to complete – it’s as simple as that, so there’s no excuse not to apply. As they say, you have to be in it to win it! Applications are open from now until September 30th, so fingers at the ready and good luck!

About the Night

On arrival at The Brewery, guests will be treated to welcome cocktails and wine; the first half of the awards will be revealed and then dinner will be served. After the final winners are announced there will be a disco to dance the night away, and there will be plenty of opportunities for industry networking in the stylish venue.
