HonestJohn.co.uk claims Best Automotive Website at Newspress Awards

Published 29 March 2018

HonestJohn.co.uk has been crowned Best Automotive Website for the third successive year at the prestigious Newspress Awards.

Praised for high quality news journalism, in-depth reviews and peerless automotive advice, HonestJohn.co.uk beat TopGear.com, WhatCar.com and AutoExpress.co.uk to take the title for a record-setting third time in a row.

The panel of eight judges, which included former motoring editor of The Sun Ken Gibson and Ian Crowder of the AA, had their work cut out in 2018 with the exceptional standard of entries. However, a combination of industry experience and expertise culminated in HonestJohn.co.uk once again being crowned as the UK’s go-to site for drivers.

As well as the best website award, HonestJohn.co.uk’s Editorial Assistant, Georgia Petrie, was awarded the coveted ‘Rising Star, Journalism’ award for her work on the website’s high profile consumer campaigns, while the site won further recognition from the judges for its popular and ‘highly entertaining’ videos, which were highly commended by the independent panel of judges.

HonestJohn.co.uk’s editorial director, Daniel Harrison, said: “To once again be recognised as the best automotive website in the UK is a real honour and is a testimony to the hard work and efforts of a creative, young and committed team.” 

Newspress’ Managing Director, Tim Barfoot, said: “Once again, the awards ceremony was a fantastic success and congratulation to all the winner. This year we received a record number of entries, and it’s not just about quantity – the standard was extremely high.”
