While the submissions process for the 2011 National Magazine Awards is still a few weeks away (Dec 1), it is never too early to submit candidates for the special Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement.
The NMAF’s most prestigious individual prize since its inception in 1990, this award is open to circulation experts, editors, marketing, sales and promotion professionals, publishers, designers, production managers — in short, to everyone in the Canadian magazine industry. It cannot be given posthumously.
The nomination consists of a letter from the nominator indicating the candidate’s name, title and career achievements, with supporting letters from at least two other individuals. The deadline for nominations is March 1, 2012. There is no fee.
The Judging Committee of the NMAF will consider the nominations, along with nominations from members of the Committee itself. The Board of the NMAF will select the winner. Nominees not selected for the award may be kept under consideration an additional two years.
Send nominations to the NMAF office. Previous winners include D.B. Scott, Terry Sellwood, Sally Armstrong, John Macfarlane, Lynn Cunningham, Robert Fulford, Jean Paré, Michael de Pencier, and more.
