The Off-Track Awards showcase the range of skills that go into each Shell Eco-marathon project and recognise the outstanding achievements of the teams off the track.

On Tuesday, June 30, 2020, the winners of the final region were announced in Europe Off-Track Awards live on Instagram and Twitter. Norman Koch, Global General Manager Shell Eco-marathon returned as our host, in the virtual show, who alongside a panel of judges revealed the winners. This time special guest Oliver Rowland, Nissan E.dams Formula E driver joined the show to congratulate the teams on their efforts.

We had a brilliant response to the European leg of the competition in all six categories, receiving more than 60 submissions from 15 different countries across the region. With a high calibre of submissions, judging was once again no easy task. Our expert panel applied rigor in their selection process, first shortlisting the best teams in each category and then deciding on the final winners who received EUROS 2,500 in prize money.

Read on for the full list of 2020 Europe Off-Track Award winners.

Norman Koch

Before we kick off the show today, I would like to thank all of you for the flexibility and understanding you have shown as we evolved the programme due to the impact of COVID-19. And as the situation continues to evolve, the health and safety of all our participants and, of course, our organizing teams remains our top priority. But now, let’s celebrate the amazing innovation that you have shown in your submissions to the Off-Track Awards. Let’s roll the titles, please.

Orchestral music transitions to a fast, edgy rock beat. Whooshing sounds accompany title transitions throughout the video.

[Animated sequence]

A light blue trophy graphic zooms into frame, centred over a darker blue background watermarked with rows of scrolling Eco-marathon related icons, alternate rows scrolling in opposite directions. After pausing at frame centre, the trophy graphic zooms to fill the frame and then dissolves, replaced by white, red and yellow lines that originate at frame centre and shoot out across the frame in various directions. Again, the trophy graphic zooms into frame, animating at frame-right, and title text in shades of red, yellow and white animates at frame-centre. Finally, a broad diagonal yellow line wipes across the frame, marking the transition to video footage of Norman seated in his home. The Awards title text and trophy graphic display briefly at frame centre, before exiting in a shrink animation.

After shortlisting the best teams in each category, our judges got together online and went through a very stringent selection process to determine the winners.

This year, the Communications Award category received a lot of amazing entries. It was very difficult to select one winner. But, of course, there can only be one winner. And the panel of judges felt that this team, in particular, we picked as winner really developed a fantastic communication strategy that involved a selection of the right mix of channels, including events. And they created some really engaging content that richly displayed knowledge of marketing tactics and tools. Without further ado, the winner of this year’s Communications Award…
