Auto Futures has topped off a memorable first seven months by being awarded an intermedia-globe SILVER at the WorldMediaFestival 2019. The team has been recognised in the website category for Web-Based Mixed Media, in a prestigious competition that has honoured leading media companies for almost two decades.
Since its launch in October 2018, Auto Futures has quickly established itself as the go-to digital content hub for journalists, dedicated to the pillars of future mobility: connected, autonomous, shared and electric.
Designed by journalists for journalists, the site combines rich editorial content from the Auto Futures team, with downloadable copyright-free multi-media assets from global mobility brands, including broadcast quality videos.
Auto Futures has already made a name for itself, covering major mobility shows around the world.
In London, Auto Futures brought to life a new smart mobility show, as a media partner for the inaugural MOVE event. Conducting 27 interviews with tech start-ups, energy providers and carmakers, the team unearthed the latest trends, as the classic automobile was replaced by innovative mobility solutions like e-bikes and flying taxis.
Next up was the Geneva Motor Show, where electrification took over the Palexpo. Our team interviewed automotive leaders as they launched their newest products, including the all-electric Pininfarina Battista hypercar and the PAL-V Liberty Limited Pioneer Edition flying car. Auto Futures was also the media partner for the Shift AUTOMOTIVE forum in Geneva, where the team interviewed experts from the panel debate, such as the well-known industry commentator Roger Lanctot.
And just weeks ago, Auto Futures reported live from two major car shows in two continents. On one side of the world, the crew covered birthday celebrations for the Ford Mustang at New York International Auto Show. And on the other, our Editor was at Auto Shanghai exclusively interviewing Citroën CEO Linda Jackson.
“Auto Futures is quickly developing into an internationally recognised digital content hub for the future of the automotive industry”, said Auto Futures Editor Alex Kreetzer. “Our coverage of the big stories at the major mobility shows has made us stand out and, after what the team has already achieved, I look forward to an exciting journey ahead.”
The team will receive its prize at the WorldMediaFestival Television & Corporate Media Awards Ceremony in Hamburg on 15 May, joining an impressive list of past winners including BBC World, MTV and Sky.
