BETHESDA, Md. Each year, the Car Care Council Women’s Board (WB) and the Automotive Communication Council (ACC) recognize those companies and agencies that provide automotive information to consumers and the trade professionals who interact with them on a daily basis, through the annual Automotive Communications Awards, which are presented at AAPEX in Las Vegas.
This year, new categories for social media efforts have been added to both the Business-to-Consumer and Business-to-Business sections. Applicants can highlight their use of Facebook, Twitter, blogs or other social media platforms in automotive marketing and communications.
Also new this year is “Show Us Your Wheels,” a contest for teens to enter a chance to win an iPod by telling the Car Care Council Women’s Board why they are passionate about their vehicles and how they maintain them. Entries should be submitted via YouTube link and must be no longer than three minutes. There is no charge for entries and the deadline is Friday, Oct. 1. The winner will receive an iPod and have their video posted on the Women’s Board website.
Also, now in its third year, two best-in-show (Business-to-Consumer and Business-to-Business) awards will be announced and presented at the WB Reception at AAPEX, Tuesday, Nov. 2.
Entries for the 2010 Automotive Communications Awards are due by Friday, Sept. 3; "Show Us Your Wheels" entries are due Friday, Oct. 1.
