Magneto magazine: The 2020 Year Book

We are currently compiling this years The Concours Year

The Concours Year is the first publication to celebrate and create a matter of record of the best Concours from around the world, it is widely acclaimed as a landmark publication for the Concours of elegance scene.

The Magneto Year Books are a collectible and important record of some of the World’s most important events. The images display the previously sold out 2019 edition.


The Concours Year 2020 will be distributed directly to concours participants in major Concours including Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Salon Privé and Concours of Elegance.

2020 has been a very different year and, for the vast majority of event organisers, a year without a concours to celebrate. The Concours Year will record those concours that went ahead, including the best virtual events and to also document and preview over 50 that were not able to proceed including Pebble Beach, Villa d’Este.  All previewed concours will receive copies to distribute to entrants and VIPs. The full list of participating concours is below.

The Concours Yearbook 2020 will maintain its very high production standards – beautifully produced, image-led, oversize, and lavish in all aspects. 

The complete reference to all Class, Special Award and Best in Show Winners of physical events we will also recognise key online concours and importantly preview over 50 key concours for 2021. Editorial features will include:

  • Highlights of 2020
  • The future of Concours – round table discussion with Sandra Button, Donald Osborne, Bruce Meyer, McKeel Hagerty and Winston Goodfellow
  • Archaeological Restoration – Miles Collier on his unique approach to restoration
  • Collector Profiles – an inside view on the strategies of some of the world’s major collectors.

The Concours Year 2020 will be distributed directly to Concours participants in major Concours including Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Salon Privé and Concours of Elegance. In addition all previewed Concours will receive 50 copies to distribute to entrants and VIPs.


The Concours Year 2020 will also be available to purchase via our website and at selected booksellers (e.g. Hortons, Autobooks Aerobooks, Chaters). 

The 2019 edition established the Yearbook as a must-have addition to the library of every concours entrant and enthusiast. With so few events in 2020, the concours community will be keen to make up for a lost year and many collectors will be keen to show their vehicles. 

The addition to in-depth previews, the Yearbook will give additional reason for entrants to study the book and presents advertisers a further opportunity to engage.
