FIVA invites nominations for 2019 Culture Awards

FIVA (the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens or international federation of historic vehicles) invites nominations for its 2019 series of Culture Awards – designed to celebrate our cultural and technical mobile heritage.

Last year, the first-ever series of FIVA’s Culture Awards saw the following winners in each category: RESEARCH – The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs with its National Historic Vehicle Survey

  • DEDICATED SERVICE – The ‘Motorcycle Republic Symposium’, an event organised by the Hellenic Motorcycle Museum
  • EDUCATION, TRAINING and the raising of
  • AWARENESS – Federación Mexicana de Automoviles Antiguos y de Colección, A.C. with the Diploma syllabus (a short film can be seen at www.fiva.org)

“This year, we’re looking forward to new projects winning awards,” comments Nataša Grom Jerina, chairwoman of FIVA’s Culture Commission. “We’re eager to see innovative new approaches, especially linked to skills and youth, alongside stunning but more traditional work.

“These awards are open to everyone, to any classic vehicle enthusiast – they are not limited to FIVA members. Our aim is to find the best project in each category (listed in the award guidelines), whether it’s within a business, a project in a school or university, a public sector programme, a project run by a community organisation, an individual or a club, a museum exhibition, a symposium, a piece of research… and so on. The possibilities are endless. What we’ll be looking at are the dynamics of the project – the organisational skills and vision – when choosing the winning entries.”

Further details, guidelines and entry forms can be found at here. Anyone is free to make a nomination (not just FIVA members), as long as the entry is submitted no later than 31st August 2019.
