Dealers and bodyshops are now being invited to submit entries for the second annual CitNOW Video Awards, being held  in London on July 6.

The CitNOW Video Awards will be presented in seven categories, with winners selected by a panel of national automotive industry experts, and chaired by CitNOW chairman Andrew Howells.

Submissions will be accepted from any employee or manager from any dealership or bodyshop that uses video technology, whether powered by CitNOW or not.

Past winners include Sytner Audi Nottingham (Best Overall CitNOW Award and Best CitNOW Sales Video Award) and Ridgeway (Best CitNOW Workshop Video and a highly commended in the Best CitNOW Sales Video category).

“Last year’s inaugural CitNOW Video Awards were fully-subscribed and we are confident that the event will be bigger and better this time around,” said Alistair Horsburgh, CitNOW chief executive.

“The success of last year just goes to show the importance of video technology in our industry and we want to showcase those who are being forward-thinking enough to embrace it.”

One first prize will be given for each category.
