NYAS Hyundai Writing Contest

You've always wanted to see an auto show before the rest of your gearhead friends, but couldn't get insider access to do so.

Now's your chance to win a trip and to get in on the action as the auto world descends on New York City's Javits Center later this month.

High Gear Media has partnered with Hyundai and the New York International Auto Show to give aspiring automotive writers a chance to attend this year's New York International Auto Show press days, when the hottest cars are unveiled--cars like the next Shelby Super Snake, the new SLK, or the latest version of the Porsche Panamera.

All you need to do--show us why you're good enough to write alongside the pros. Tell us about your most memorable auto show moment and you'll be entered to win airfare and hotel for two to New York, along with access to the show.

It only takes one published story to enter, but the more you write, the better your chance to win.

We're looking for creative entries and strong writing. Impress us, and your writing could land you a paid writing gig on one of our hub sites--TheCarConnection, MotorAuthority, GreenCarReports, AllCarsElectric, FamilyCarGuide, AllCarTech, or SocialCarNews.

Now for the rules, in brief. Each submission must be at least 250 words and must be well-written. Our editorial team will be looking for the best, most thoughtful entries. Originality is key, as are grammar and spelling. While our blogging platform gives you access to a huge library of photos, you can also craft an entry using YouTube clips and other media resources--so long as they're used and cited properly.

The contest ends on April 11 at 11:59 PM EST, so start brainstorming now. Remember, the more you enter the better your chances to win.

Below are a few videos that will help jump start your creative process:

  1. This is while Nissan is selling Titan pickup trucks that have a gas tank design defect resulting in gasoline leaks that it refuses to fix or even acknowledge. The result: if you buy a new Titan you may soon find you have a gas leak that costs about one thousand dollars to fix (the whole tank has to be replaced) and no guarantee that the fix will last more than a few weeks since the original design defect is in the replacement tank. The shame is that this defect could be cured by Nissan shielding the vulnerable part, probably for just a few dollars. But Nissan would rather have its customers pay thousands in repeated gas tank replacements and endure the danger of continued gasoline leaks than take responsibility and spend a few dollars itself. This is the real world as opposed to the fantasy world Nissan is trying to promote at the auto show.
