Are you aiming for a career in the car industry? Do you think your ideas could change the way that cars are designed, built, sold or used? Are you a student at college or university?
If the answers to those questions are yes, then your time is running out to enter our Autocar-Courland Next Generation Award, and potentially win £6000 in cash, plus a dream start to your automotive career.
Autocar is putting out one last call for submissions for this exciting competition, the closing date for which is 23 October. To enter, all you need to do is email a 600-word answer to the following question to firstname.lastname@example.org: where do you think the next automotive industry revolution will start, and what will it deliver?
Examples could focus on any aspect of the automotive industry including technology, politics, production processes, financial incentives, a combination of these or something entirely different.
Six shortlisted entrants will be invited to spend a day with senior decision makers from each of the brands involved in the competition – Ford, Harley-Davidson, Honda and the Marshall Motor Group – to present their ideas in a boardroom situation.
The three finalists will be invited to attend the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ prestigious annual dinner, where the winner will be announced.
And together with his £6000 cash prize, the winner will receive four week’s work experience with each of the four companies involved with the competition. It’s a unique chance to launch an automotive career.
