MANILA, Philippines, 27 August 2015– Ford Philippines is now accepting entries for the 15th Henry Ford Awards (HFA), the country’s premier and only award giving body for excellence in automotive journalism.

The HFA distinguishes and celebrates the vital roles that journalists play in writing and driving the growth of the automotive industry and remains to be the exclusive award-giving body that recognizes journalism excellence in print, online and broadcast media.

“We at Ford are proud of our legacy of recognizing the hard work that our media partners do and the commitment they put into ensuring their stories and reports are done with integrity and passion. As we go into the 15th year of the Henry Ford Awards, we are more than proud to be continuing our support to uphold excellence in automotive journalism,” said Joseph Ayllón, assistant vice president, Communications, Ford Philippines.
