Nov. 3, 2020—Women in Auto Care, a community of the Auto Care Association, has announced the 2020 Automotive Communications Award winners, according to a press release.

The Automotive Communications Awards annually celebrate the communication and marketing achievements across 35 categories in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer markets throughout the auto care industry.

New in 2020, the award submissions were judged and winners determined by volunteer members of the Auto Care Association Marketing and Communications Committee and the Automotive Communications Council (ACC).

A portion of the proceeds from each award submission this year goes towards providing scholarships to women entering the automotive aftermarket industry.

The award winners will be formally recognized today as part of the Women in Auto Care Awards Ceremony during the Virtual AAPEX Experience and throughout the year during Women in Auto Care events.
