Your chance to nominate unsung heroes in the classic world
FIVA has announced a new series of awards celebrating cultural and technical heritage – and nominations are now invited for people, projects and organisations
The Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens (FIVA) has unveiled a series of inaugural awards to celebrate cultural and technical heritage with three new categories in:
- Dedicated service by individuals or organisations and;
- Education, training and the raising of awareness
‘The aim is to promote people, projects and organisations that have great ideas but not necessarily such great financial support,’ explained Nataša Grom, president of the FIVA Culture Commission.
- FIVA boosts support for lesser-known classic events
- Trialling in an Austin Seven
- Great classic cars for sale!
‘While we recognise the excellence of – for example – many existing factories and museums,' says Nataša, 'there are also smaller, less wealthy outfits that are contributing hugely to our international mobile heritage and deserve a bit of praise!
'This year, the FIVA Culture Awards will be presented for the first time and we’re hoping the winners could be names that are so far relatively unknown in the world of historic vehicles. Hence we need nominations from anyone – in any part of the world – who knows of people or projects or organisations that are helping to promote historic vehicles as a part of humankind’s cultural and technical heritage, and would benefit from a bit of recognition and support.’
The new FIVA categories
Outstanding research projects described as leading ‘to tangible effects in the enhancement of cultural and technical mobile heritage worldwide'.
Dedicated service by individuals or organisations (Clubs, Federations, Museums etc)
Open to those whose contributions over a long period of time demonstrate excellence in the protection and enhancement of cultural and technical mobile heritage worldwide, far exceeding normal expectations.
Education, training and the raising of awareness
Outstanding initiatives related to education, training and the raising of awareness in the field of cultural and technical mobile heritage, with focus on the promotion of, and/or contributions to, the sustainable development of the environment.
How to make a nomination
You can find the full low-down on further details, guidelines and entry forms on the FIVA website. Anyone can make a nomination, not just FIVA members, and it's free!
Entries must be submitted no later than 31 August 2018.
