Madrid, February 19 2003.- "Andalusia in Bus" is the title of the series of reports awarded the First Prize in the category of "Press General Information" of the Fourth Edition of the National Journalism Award of the Spanish Association of the Road (AEC). The authorship of this work, published in El Mundo Andalusia between the 6 and 10 2002 August days, corresponds to Luis Miguel Fuentes, a journalist who is credited with other awards such as Eduardo Mendicutti of 2001.

Throughout the five stories that make up his series, Luis Miguel Fuentes takes a bus tour through the main roads of Andalusia in which we reach the human side of this type of land communication routes; and it does retratándolas through the mosaic of people who pass through them. To do this, Fuentes proposes a trip on a means of transport at the crossroads of a huge variety of personalities, motivations, hopes and yearnings. Means of transport, after all, that, following the storyline of the author, brings us back to the original concept of the road as a means of communication between people and peoples of all kinds, above social classes and economic and cultural differences.

Moreover, within the category of "Specialized Press", the winner of the IV National Journalism Award of the ACS is Marcos Ruiz Fences. The job that has attended the event, "Towards road congestion ... and paying" was published in the journal Land Transport and Logistics in its November issue of 2002, and he performs an analysis of the near future of Spanish roads; some roads, as is evident in the story of Mark Ruiz, face numerous challenges with important consequences on the national economy, despite efforts made in recent years.
