- Second annual Subaru Feature Writing Award honoured Mark Richardson and first runner-up Lee Bailie.
(MISSISSAUGA, ONT.)— Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is pleased to participate in the 35th annual Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) automotive journalism awards as a sponsor of the 2018 Subaru Feature Writing Award. At the AJAC awards banquet in Ajax, Ont., SCI recognized 2018 Subaru Feature Writing Award winner Mark Richardson and first runner-up Lee Bailie.
Richardson’s award-winning feature, “The Headless Motorcyclist on the Ghost Road,” introduced the reader to the hunt for truth behind local folklore. The bilingual team of judges connected with a well-written, thoughtful article chronicling an interesting and eerie journey.
The first runner-up, Lee Bailie, had judges planning their own road trip to Bowling Green, Ky., in “Operation: Homecoming.” Judges were impressed with Bailie’s meticulous attention to detail as he provided an in-depth journey from Toronto to Kentucky to explore the National Corvette Museum.
This is Subaru Canada’s second year presenting the Feature Writing Award. The longer feature story covers a wide range of subjects. The award recognizes compelling stories that develop a connection between the author and his or her audience.
