2023 Elegance Awards

Special Awards, including Elegance Awards, are generally selected by special committees of Honorary Judges.

While most Special Award Trophies are perpetual and are maintained at Pebble Beach, winners are presented with an inscribed sculpture created from the Pebble Beach Concours Trophy or with another unique trophy.

Gwenn Graham Most Elegant Convertible

This award goes to the most elegant convertible present. The trophy is named for the woman who was involved in founding the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Jules Heumann Most Elegant Open Car

This award goes to the most elegant open car present—a car that has no side windows, though it may have side curtains, as compared to a convertible, which generally has roll-up windows. The trophy is named for our former Chairman who was a guiding light to this Concours for over 45 years.
