Call for National Magazine Awards Judges

Each year the National Magazine Awards Foundation relies on over two hundred volunteer judges to evaluate the collection of nearly 2000 wonderful submissions we receive from magazines and individuals across the country. [Version française ici]

These judges are not only leaders and experts in their field but also committed to ensuring a strong and vibrant Canadian magazine industry where excellence today serves as the standard for tomorrow’s creators.

This year we are looking for new judges to serve on English, French and bilingual juries for written categories, as well as juries for visual, integrated and special categories, including digital-publishing experts.

Judges ideally should be veterans of the magazine industry in editing, publishing, writing, art direction, illustration, photography, digital production or circulation, or offer expertise in a particular field pertinent to the National Magazine Awards.

Whether you have judged in the past or are new to the National Magazine Awards, we welcome and will consider all candidates.

To nominate yourself or a colleague as a judge, or for more information, please review the NMAF Judging Process and contact our office at staff [at]
