Two Auto123.Com Contributors Win AJAC Awards

Two contributors were recently recognized for the excellence of their work during the 34th Annual Journalism Awards put on by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada, held on October 25th in Ajax, Ontario.

Montreal-based Marc Lachapelle, whose review of the 2018 Jaguar F-Type with 4-cylinder engine appeared on this week, took home the highest honour of the evening, receiving the Jaguar Land Rover Journalist of the Year award. It’s the third-time the over-achieving journalist has earned that recognition.

"Marc was a very worthy winner and it was great reading all the entries this year. The judges had a tough time deciding on a winner, and they stressed how much fun it was reading these outstanding submissions from gifted writers who love what they do."

- John Lindo, Director of Public Relations for Jaguar Land Rover Canada, who presented the award to Lachapelle

Marc’s colleague Dan Heyman, meanwhile, earned the Pfaff Pirelli Photography award for his excellent visual work. Check out the photo galleries for the 2017 Honda CR-V and the 2018 Genesis G80 Sport for a peek at Dan’s handiwork!
