Autocar and Courland Automotive have opened up their unique Next Generation Award programme to all UK residents aged 17-25 years old for 2015.
The Award is designed to be a career springboard for young people aspiring to work in the ultra-competitive automotive industry. The winner of the 2015 competition is set to receive a £9000 cash prize, plus six months of hands-on work experience, shared between award sponsors Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren Automotive, Peugeot, Skoda, Toyota and Honda, which returns as an award sponsor this year.
For the first time, the award is open to any people in the correct age range rather than students on qualifying courses. Applications for the 2015 Autocar Courland Next Generation Award are now open at the newly revamped website.
Autocar Editor-in-Chief and Award head judge, Steve Cropley, said: “Our panel of judges have been constantly amazed by the wide variety and ingenuity of the young people who have entered the Autocar Courland Award down the years.
"The Award is now entering its seventh year and has touched thousands of lives and resulted directly in several people starting careers in their dream industry. By opening the Award to all young adults, we look forward to seeing an even more dizzying array of innovative ideas and unlocking the door to the next automotive industry star.”
