eBay has launched its inaugural Van Conversion of the Year Awards which celebrates the most beautifully executed, space efficient and clever Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) conversions in the UK.
The online automotive marketplace is seeking the best fit outs across a range of industry sectors, covering any and every purpose, including campervan conversions.
eBay has enlisted the help of an expert judging panel, including architect and TV presenter, George Clarke and Design and Engineering company, Envisage Group, which has a global reputation for engineering expertise and craftsmanship.
The panel will identify individual category winners before choosing the overall Van Conversion of the Year winner.
George Clarke, TV Presenter and Architect, said: “Depending on the original van, it can be a really tough task to transform the vehicle; not only do you want it to look stylish, but you need it to be practical and suitable for its chosen use.
“I converted a rusty 70s van into a stylish camper a few years ago and was amazed at the possibilities.
“Whether it’s a campervan converted into a contemporary home or a Transit turned into the perfect workspace, I can’t wait to see how entrants have modified the spaces they are using.”
Entries are now open and close 2nd October.
Category winners will each receive £250 worth of eBay items while the Overall Van Conversion of the year winner will receive a £10,000 cash prize.
Manish Goenka, eBay UK Car Parts & Accessories Category Lead said: “This year we’ve found ourselves increasingly inspired by some of the innovative modifications we’ve been seeing on van conversions and are launching this competition in celebration of these DIYers.
“With thousands of sellers and five official brand stores, the breadth and scale of eBay allows converters to get everything and anything on the marketplace.
“Teamed with an enthusiastic tinkerer and a creative eye, the possibilities are endless.”
