Dale Kistemaker won the Bob D’Olivo Award for Photography for his story “24+30,” which appeared in the December 2014 issue. The article was written and photographed by Kistemaker, who recounted his first experience at Le Mans in 1984 and illustrated it with a selection of beautiful photos from the race.

In a repeat of the 2014 awards, all three photography finalists hailed from Panorama, guaranteeing at least one award for PCA’s magazine, and the third year in a row it has won the category outright.

Camden Thrasher was a finalist for his photo in the “Backstory” column of the August 2015 issue, picturing a Porsche 919 Hybrid pit-crew member running with a wheel during a tire change. In “à la Carte,” also from the August 2015 issue, Clint Davis was recognized for his pictures of one man’s perfect Porsche, a 2012 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet.

Two authors made the cut in two writing categories. Contributor Dan Proudfoot was a finalist in the Feature Article category for his story “Ludwig the Loud,” in the September 2014 issue, about Canadian racer Ludwig Heimrath. Editor-in-Chief Pete Stout was a finalist in the Vehicle Review category for “Ultra RS,” his review of the new 911 GT3 RS that appeared in the July 2015 issue.
