    we are still in the planning phase, perhaps in June we will be in Ulianovsk so this would be the starting point, if nothing changes as it is still far away
    Good luck

    Will this, or a similar competition be running again next year? Or was it a one time thing?
    I suspect that if it is ran again, there may be some changes in store.
    I'd trim down the amount of entries to one per person, in any category.

    I don't know about that, the skills needed for a video vs a picture entry are very different, and therefore I'd be in favour of one per catagory. Though, I would be inclined to suggest a 'no professionals' rule

    Excellent! I enjoyed seeing so many people participating and contributing their stuff, I feel it brought in people who may have been hesitant to post their work

    I must admit this was a massive boost to me, just a time when I really needed one! Unfortunately I just can't seem to recreate the success of the 'Excellent Road Test Report' I think it must have been a perfect storm of having a great idea and being in the right frame of mind to write it without pulling any punches and getting the humour vs factual information balance just right. I think it helps that so many people loved that episode. It was a highlight of Season 1 for me - that's partly why I was inspired to write it. I'll definitely be submitting something for DT Awards 2018, but I won't be holding out much hope of scooping the double. Mind you! You never know! I didn't expect to win the 2017 prize! :)

    I've actually come up with what I think is a fitting sequel to the Clarkson Review. Not sure if I made it too long though. It's not getting much love. :( drivetribe.com/p/amphibious-car-group-road-water-JffqSuvISrCmdC-rIzwvcQ?iid=VwSUfWPLRSShTN50oCAXNA
