Awards all around: New NMAF Professional Resources

Today the NMAF is debuting a Professional Resources section on its website that contains, among other things, an extensive listing of awards programs out there for Canadian writers and artists.

Having discussed with the Canadian magazine industry the need for a centralized location for awards, grants and other opportunities available to Canadian magazine (and other media) writers and artists, the NMAF took up the challenge of creating this resource, which includes awards for magazine journalism, young writers and journalistic organizations; fellowships and grants; and writing contests for fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

The NMAF invites users of this resource to provide their feedback and suggest other awards that might benefit Canadian magazine writers and artists. Check it out.
