And the Nominees Are…
The National Media Awards Foundation (NMAF) is delighted to share the nominees for the 45th annual National Magazine Awards. Our incredible roster of more than 100 volunteer judges dedicated countless hours to evaluating entries from hundreds of magazines across the country. From their careful consideration of more than 1000 entries, we are pleased to present this list of 199 impressive finalists.
The winners will be announced on June 3 during a virtual ceremony hosted by award-winning journalist Kelly Boutsalis, with Gold winners in writing and visual categories receiving a $1000 cash prize. Please join us in congratulating all of this year’s nominees!
Save the date! We’re thrilled to announce that we will be hosting a long-overdue, in-person event in Toronto on September 29, 2022. Join us at the Globe and Mail Centre for a day of professional development and an evening of reconnecting and networking with friends and peers. Details to follow this summer.
