Ulrich Wins 2013 Ken Purdy Award - Honored For Excellence In Automotive Journalism
IMPA established the award in 1972 in memory of Ken Purdy, considered by many as perhaps the best auto writer this country has produced, and author of the seminal 1949 automotive tome Kings of the Road. Purdy was editor of Parade and True in the 1940s and '50s before he became a freelance writer who contributed both fiction short stories and automotive pieces to Playboy magazine.
Eligible works for the award include a newspaper or magazine article, a book, a script resulting in a film or video, or an online piece. Regardless of the nature of the entry, publication or release must have been during the calendar year preceding the award presentation.
IMPA, one of the country's oldest organizations of automotive journalists and public-relations professionals, was founded 52 years ago in New York City. During its history, IMPA has spawned similar organizations, while continuing to provide its members with a convivial meeting place and links through modern communication technologies. Membership includes journalists from all media – print, broadcast and online – as well as public-relations representatives of the world's major automotive manufacturers and suppliers. All members share the same privileges of membership, whether they are journalists or public-relations professionals.
