Winners’ Circle

An exclusive event from the National Media Awards Foundation

On Tuesday, May 29, the NMAF presented Winners’ Circle, a special event that brought together award-winning and nominated writers, editors, artists, art directors to meet, mingle, pitch and learn about the value of diversity.

All National Magazine Awards winners, and past and current finalists were invited to join us at One King West Hotel in Toronto, for this exciting learning and networking activity. The event was FREE and included a lunch for attendees.

The Value of Diversity: A Panel Discussion
The two-part event will begin with a panel discussion moderated by the national columnist for StarMetro, Vicky Mochama. A regular columnist for the Toronto Star, Vicky writes about issues at the intersections of race, politics, gender and migration.


Vicky will be joined by panel members Andree LauEternity MartisHadiya Roderique and Kyle Edwards for a discussion around the theme of diversity in the media. The discussion was livestreamed on Facebook.

Fast Pitch
After the panel presentation, it was time to mingle and network with peers. We facilitated introductions between writers, artists, editors and art directors.

Let us know if you have an idea for next year’s panel discussion.
