Anyone can submit a vehicle for consideration.
The Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance is by invitation only. The Car Selection Committee invites those vehicles that they feel best exemplify the annual theme and class structure. Several factors are taken into consideration for accepting a vehicle for the Amelia Island Concours. The following information and guidelines should help clarify the consideration given to each vehicle.
Criteria for submitting a vehicle:
Vehicles newer than 1974 are generally not considered. Each year special consideration is given to vehicles of a "featured class." Special consideration is also given to those vehicles associated with the career of the Honoree. Our Honoree for 2017 is four time Indianapolis 500 Winner Al Unser Sr. In the area of racecars, the Car Selection Committee does, from time to time, invite a newer model if the vehicle adds a sense of completeness and balance to a particular class.
Vehicles accepted to the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance cannot be displayed at any other event during the 30 day period preceding the Amelia Island Concours (exceptions will be made for AACA sanctioned events.)
If you would like to have a vehicle considered, please observe the following:
Only 225 at-large vehicles will be accepted for consideration. The earlier you submit your vehicle for consideration, the better. Individuals that wait until the deadline usually find the field has been set.
Submit two photos (one front and one side elevation). Please be sure to label your photos with year, make, model, and owner. Due to the volume received, photos cannot be returned.
Submit a brief history of the vehicle including the VIN and your contact information.
Your submission (photos and history) must be postmarked no later than August 31, 2016.
Sorry, NO e-mail submissions are accepted.
Photos and histories postmarked after August 31, 2016, will be held over and may be considered for future events.
