Judges confirmed for The Race Media Awards

LONDON, UK (Wednesday, October 19, 2022) – The Race Media Awards has revealed its panel of high-profile and fully independent judges for the second installment of its innovative and unique Awards.

The three experienced, professional and knowledgeable judges are

Allan McNish – Director of motorsport co-ordination at Audi
Louise Beckett – founder of the Loudspeaker agency and pitlane reporter for WEC
Rollo Goldstaub – Tik Tok, Head of UK Sport and Gaming

Between them, they have extensive experience across the worlds of sport, motorsport, media, communications, marketing, and activation. This will be invaluable when deciding the winners for the Awards, which take place on February 1, 2023.

McNish said: “I’m delighted to be a part of the judging panel. Having been involved in motorsport for many years – and in many different roles – has given me a keen insight into what makes good and effective PR, marketing and communications. While it may not play a key role in making the car go any faster, a record-breaking lap time that no one is aware of has little or no value at all. So I look forward to rewarding those who do it best.”

Beckett said: “It’s a real honour to be asked to be part of the judging panel for The Race Media Awards. As somebody who has been involved in motorsport media and broadcast for many years now, I think it’s a great way to give my appreciation and opinion on some quality campaigns that perhaps may not always get the recognition they deserve. I’m really looking forward to seeing the entries.”

Goldstaub said: “I am delighted to join the judging panel of the 2023 Race Media Awards. Motorsports is an important category on TikTok, and we’ve been proud to sponsor the Aston Martin F1 team this year. Racers, teams, rights holders, broadcasters, and publishers have all discovered new and growing audiences on TikTok with content that matches our mission to inspire creativity and joy.”

The Race Media Awards are fully independent. The judges’ decision is theirs alone, and success is not dependent on buying a table at the prize-giving (entry is free by invitation only).

Entry to the Awards is open now, and there are seven awards to choose from. Entries close on the 1st December 2022. 

The Race Media Awards recognise creative excellence, genuine impact and global influence.

They are open to all classes of motorsport across the board, on two wheels and four. Whether you’re an agency with some big-hitting clients, a commercial rights holder that is transforming the image of their sport or a team that has taken an innovative approach to building a new fan base, The Race Media Awards are for you.

An independent panel of judges will review all entries and a short list will be announced for each category and celebrated for their efforts.

Entry submissions for 2023 are now open
