Society of Automotive Historians Awards

Each year, the Society presents several awards in recognition of significant contributions to the publishing, documentation and preservation of the worldwide history of the motor vehicle. There are awards for print media (books, articles and periodicals) and non-print media (film, video, audio, websites, etc.). Awards are also made for papers authored by undergraduate and graduate-level students at educational institutions, for the preservation of libraries and archives, and for individuals’ exemplary service to the cause of automotive history.

Nominations are received in the spring of each year for books, periodicals and articles published in the previous calendar year, for undergraduate and graduate student papers, and for individuals, museums, libraries and archives.  Please see our Nominations page for submission details and deadlines.

Below are links to each award, providing award descriptions, contacts for each Award Panel Chair, and lists of previous recipients for each award:
