Share Article

MOTOR Magazine was recently recognized with several editorial awards.

Continuing its longstanding tradition of editorial excellence, MOTOR Magazine recently earned a number of honors in three major competitions for work published in 2013—the American Society of Business Publication Editors (“Azbees”), the Trade, Association and Business Publications International (“Tabbies”) and the International Automotive Media Competition (IAMC).

Karl Seyfert, MOTOR’s Executive Editor, was a big winner. His article “Different Strokes: Internal Combustion Engines Still Deliver” (March 2013 issue) garnered a Silver Tabbie award for best technical article as well as Silver in the IAMC competition in the Technical: General category. In addition, Mr. Seyfert’s regularly scheduled Trouble Shooter column earned a Gold IAMC award and a Silver Azbee.

John Lypen, MOTOR’s Editor and Publisher, was also a winner in the three competitions. His Editor’s Report column won a Gold IAMC award, a Silver Tabbie and a Bronze Azbee.

MOTOR’s contributing writers also collected some hardware for their efforts in 2013. A Gold IAMC award in the Technical: How to Do It category went to Sam Bell for “TPMS Sensors Reach Retirement Age” (June 2013), and an IAMC Silver in the same category was awarded to Bob Chabot for “Are You Planning for an Electric Surge?” (Sept. 2013).

Lastly, everyone was honored by IAMC with a Silver award in the category Best Single Issue (Writing) for the August 2013 issue. “We always want to produce the best product for our readers,” Mr. Lypen said. “All of us are honored by, and appreciative of, these awards.”
