Call for Judges: 44th Annual NMAs

The National Media Awards Foundation is getting ready for the 44th Annual National Magazine Awards! We are now welcoming applications for judges for the 2021 National Magazine Awards, Digital Publishing Awards, and the National Magazine Awards: B2B

Since 1976, the NMAs have continued as the premiere showcase for writers’ and artists’ excellence. Last year, 1,900 literary and artistic entries from a diverse group of 377 publications were adjudicated by 300+ volunteer peers. 

We welcome applications from individuals who bring different industry perspectives – from recognized leaders to celebrated emerging talents. We also aim for the judging panels to reflect our country’s diverse Indigenous, cultural, and regional communities.

Judging will take place during February and March 2021. To volunteer or nominate a peer to the jury, contact us at staff@magazine-awards.com. More information is on our blog.
