Classic Recollections, the Daily Herald's weekly feature on collector cars and their suburban owners, and writer Matthew Avery have earned a 2012 International Automotive Media Award.

Avery won a bronze medallion in the newspaper column-writing category. The awards are judged annually by the International Society for Vehicle Preservation, based in Tucson, Ariz.

Avery, a professional photographer and freelance writer, has written Classic Recollections for the Daily Herald's Sunday Auto section since 2010.

The Palatine resident owns Prestige MotorCar Photography and says he is blessed to make a career doing something he loves, which is talking to owners and learning about their vehicles.

"Each one has a style and personality and I always walk away with a deeper appreciation for it and the past it was created and used in," he said.

The three stories submitted for judging profiled owners of a 1958 Cadillac hearse, a 1927 Chevrolet Capital farm truck and a 1972 Dodge Polara Chicago Police Department squad car.

This is the 22nd year for the society's media competition.
