The Star Garners Four â€œOscars of the Auto Industryâ€
New York (Nov. 15) â€“ The Star, the Mercedes-Benz Club of America magazine, has won four IAMA awards, considered to be the Oscars of the auto industry.
Announced today by the International Automotive Media Association at its annual awards presentation, the IAMA awards honor writers, publishers and media relations professionals in the automotive industry.
Walter Haessner, executive director of IAMA said, â€œThe four awards won by The Star are extremely well deserved. Our judges agree that itâ€™s unquestionably one of the best-written, best-produced car club publications out there. The Mercedes-Benz Club magazine rivals the major car books in content and photography as well as graphic design.â€
David Cummings, executive director for the Mercedes-Benz Club said, â€œWe are ecstatic to receive this recognition of excellence. For years, The Star has been a key part of what draws Mercedes-Benz owners to join the Club. In fact, while the benefits of MBCA membership are numerous, many members feel that just receiving The Star every other month makes our $45 annual dues a terrific value.â€
