Winners’ Circle Webinar

On November 25, 2015, the National Magazine Awards Foundation presented Winners’ Circle, an exclusive learning and networking event. More than 70 NMA winners and nominees gathered at The Spoke Club in Toronto’s King West district to meet, mingle, network and learn about how an NMA can be a boost to your career.

The NMAF has created this webinar to share best practices on how to leverage your National Magazine Award. In a discussion led by D.B. Scott, we uncover the many different ways that three NMA winners, Penny Caldwell of Cottage Life, Matt Blackett of Spacing and Katherine Laidlaw of The Walrus, have effectively leveraged and optimized their recognition of excellence in winning a National Magazine Award.
