Ford Philippines has announced the winners of the 21st Henry Ford Awards (HFA) as an annual tradition of recognizing excellence in Philippine motoring journalism.
Held at the Blue Leaf Pavilion in Taguig City, the event marked the return to a physical ceremony to honor the work of automotive journalists and its impact on the local motoring industry.
Winners from this year’s HFA were selected from over 230 entries submitted by members of the print, online, and broadcast automotive media which underwent a rigorous two-phase judging process. A total of sixteen (16) winners were announced across four main categories, which include the three new sub-categories under the Industry category namely Best Automotive Vehicle Review – Article, Best Automotive Review – Video, and Best Automotive Launch Story, as well as the new People category, which recognizes the Best Automotive Print Editor, Best Automotive Online Editor, Best Automotive Writer, and Best Automotive Video Host.
“The HFA continues to recognize the important role of motoring journalists in driving the automotive industry forward.
Every year, we find ways to innovate and make the HFA a relevant award-giving body that celebrates the hard work, passion, and dedication of the members of the Philippine automotive media,” said EJ Francisco, Communications Director, Ford Philippines and Asia Pacific Distributor Markets.
