Mike Mavrigian, editor of MTD's sister publication, Auto Service Professional (ASP), won a silver medal in the Technical/How to do it category for "Electronic fuel pump diagnosis."

ASP writer Bob Weber also came home with a medal. He won silver in the Technical/Reference category with his "Lift Update" story.

The purpose of the International Automotive Media Awards is to "recognize and encourage excellence in all forms of automotive media."

The IAMA is part of the International Automotive Media Competition (IAMC). Both are administered, produced and owned by the International Society for Vehicle Preservation.
