The SAE International Commercial Vehicle Excellence in Media Awards are designed to recognize journalists, broadcasters and photographers for outstanding work covering the commercial vehicle industry.

SAE International will award a grand prize of $500 and four runner-up prizes of $100 for the best entries in the categories of print articles, broadcasts, books and photographs about the commercial vehicle industry.

The competition will be judged by an independent panel of respected journalism professors with newsroom experience. Final tabulations will be calculated by Stelmack Dobransky & Eannace, LLC, a certified public accounting firm.

The awards will be presented at the 2007 SAE Commercial Vehicle Engineering Congress and Exhibition, Oct. 30-Nov. 1 in Rosemont, Ill.
