“Life has been challenging over the past years. Social distancing, limitations on travel and the cancellation of events affected everyone on the planet, not least the historic vehicle community – but our passion for automotive culture has never dimmed,” says Nataša G. Jerina, VP Culture and Youth at FIVA (the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens or international federation of historic vehicles).
“In FIVA’s Culture Commission, we believe that – more than ever – there are projects and people who deserve recognition. We therefore invite nominations for the FIVA Culture Awards – to motivate all enthusiasts and show the world that passion and dedication will never be frustrated by a virus!”
FIVA will be presenting Culture Awards in the following categories:
