"We're seeing fantastic work in automotive across media," said Yash Egami, Director of Content at The One Club and producer of the Automobile Advertising of the Year Awards.

"Automotive advertising has been elevated to a true art form," said Bob Shuman, Chairman of the NAIAS 2014. "Content now includes story lines, character development, and many qualities that are found in the production of fine films and TV programs. The delivery of this content is becoming increasingly progressive, embracing social media and other alternative forms of communication. We are very excited to be associated with this award, and congratulate the winners."
Winners were recognized in five categories – Print & Outdoor, Broadcast TV, Online Videos, Interactive and Experiential Advertising – and were revealed on-stage at a special event during the NAIAS Press Preview on Tuesday, January 14, 2014, at the Cobo Center in Detroit.
