The Henry Ford Awards (HFA) is now in its 18th year, and it continues to be the only award-giving body that recognizes the efforts of local automotive journalists. This year, a total of 239 entries were submitted for 16 different categories.

“The HFA has become an institution in the local automotive industry with its continuing efforts to help boost the practice of motoring journalism in the country, and give outstanding motoring journalists the recognition they deserve,” said EJ Francisco, assistant vice president for communications at Ford Philippines.

Top Gear Philippines won three awards this year. Editor-in-chief Paulo Rafael Subido took the honors for Best Automotive Feature for the story ‘Sell the car? Here’s the cost of maintenance over 21 years.’ Tracy Carpena, meanwhile, took the award for Best Automotive Road Safety Feature for the story ‘What are the legal implications of leaving a toddler inside a car?’ Lastly, Mikey Yan won the trophy for the Best Ford Automotive Feature for the story ‘A surprise fit for a queen.’
