The NMAF is excited to embark upon the 2019 to 2020 awards season, and we’re looking for an excellent intern to tag along on the adventure.
We’ve crafted our internship to check all of the boxes: a flexible schedule (the majority of the work can be completed remotely), the opportunity to get an inside look at the Canadian media industry and the NMAF’s operations, and the chance to enhance your communications, publicity, and event planning skillset.
“The NMAF internship is a great opportunity for anyone starting out in the media, publishing, or PR industry. I’m really grateful that I’ve been able to make some excellent contacts while working for the NMAF” – Krista Robinson, 2016-17 intern
Day-to-day, the intern will assist with administrative tasks—you’ll help us sort submissions, and prepare for one of Canada’s most esteemed cultural events—the National Magazine Awards gala. You’ll also have the opportunity to make a great first impression on writers, editors, publishers, and other members of the industry, making this internship a one-of-a-kind experience for anyone interested in the field of magazine writing or publishing.
“I think the internship broke down the industry into bite-sized pieces and made it seem less daunting. Working with a small team helped me see how other small editorial and similar teams manage to produce all that they do. Overall everyone I spoke to/ emailed/ interacted with were pleasant and excited about making quality Canadian magazines. (…) Working with the NMAF introduced me to countless future editors, co-workers, and collaborators.” – Stephanie Philp, 2017-18 intern
