Editor Grand Prix / Grand prix de la rédaction

Jac Renée Bruneau has shaped C Magazine not only into a progressive art reference, but a shining example of diversity and inclusion in bona fide action. The topics and creative work covered between the astutely designed pages all reinforce a fresh and much-needed new range of perspectives in the Canadian art media world.

NMA Jury
Jac Renée Bruneau,
C Magazine
Nicholas Hune-Brown,
The Local

Nicholas Hune-Brown impressed for the quality of the writing about vital humanitarian issues he brought to The Local, as well as the fact that much of it was produced by up-and-coming writers he personally helped coach. That generosity of spirit and community-mindedness is what will propel Canadian media out of its status quo.

NMA Jury

Phillipe Lamarre demonstrated that even a global pandemic is no match for the creativity and constant evolution he inspires at URBANIA, as both a magazine and a wider media franchise. When much of the publishing world was at a standstill he steered his ship deeper into the waters of social media, going to get his audience where it (mostly) now lives. Insightful, continual reinvention.

A balance is struck between emerging and established writers, and there is a commitment to reflect diverse audiences in many of its featured voices.

NMA Jury

Inuit Art Quarterly embodies the sophisticated and strategic thinking, international calibre, and confident elegance that combine to manifest an outstanding magazine. By prioritizing current work, and featuring new writers, its feel is both modern and contemporary.

NMA Jury

Vie des Arts is a publication of incredible distinction — cohesive and visually stunning, it embodies a true commitment to inclusion, community, and access in the writing, featured subjects, and the reviews.

NMA Jury

Best Magazine: Special Interest / Meilleur magazine : intérêt spécial

Broadview continues to innovate after its brave rebrand in 2019. In line with their three editorial pillars — spirituality, social justice, and ethical living — they are taking on a solutions-based approach to social change. Top-notch writing and design make Broadview one of Canada’s great magazines.

NMA Jury

From the solid art direction to the quality and relevance of the content from the first page to the last, the expertise of each of the contributors is felt in all aspects of La Trente.

NMA Jury

Tusaayaksat is a magazine that demonstrates the power of small and diasporic communities — their strength, creativity, and expertise. Created by and for Inuvialuit — Inuit of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region and their communities outside the region — it is an inspiring example of how a magazine can forge relationships, share knowledge, and celebrate a culture.

NMA Jury
