A Message from Douglas Thomson, President of the NMAF

Tomorrow we gather to celebrate excellence in Canadian magazine publishing at the 36th annual National Magazine Awards. [Version française ci-dessous]

“Content is King.” It’s a phrase we’ve heard time and again over the past few years. And while talking about it is one thing, investing in it is quite another.

What does Content is King actually mean in practice? To my eye, it means all of a magazine’s resources are dedicated to its highest priority: producing the best content possible. It also suggests that without this quality control, your chances of survival as a business are severely limited.

It doesn’t matter if your readership is 5,000 or 500,000. To believe Content is King is to commit fully to the work of the writers, editors, designers, photographers and illustrators—your most important assets—regardless of the scope of the budget.

The good news is that consumers will always be drawn to quality content. That may not be news in itself, but it is a sign that we are beginning to see the true result of that investment, be it monetary or intellectual. Ideally both.

It is that success that we’re here to celebrate. Take a look around you at tomorrow night’s gala. The people here care about content. They believe content is what really matters. Congratulate them. These are the people in whom we’ve put our collective faith, these talented creators who strive for excellence. Some of the nominees you’ve no doubt heard of before, and some are nominated for the first time, including Chez Soi, Globe Style Advisor, Hazlitt, Infopresse, Le Must, New Trail, Nouveau Project, Ottawa Citizen Style and Write Magazine.

I would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to the hard-working folks who helped get us here, including of course the staff at the NMAF: Managing Director Barbara Gould, Media Liaison and Special Projects Manager Richard Johnson, and Josh Penslar our Production Manager. I also want to thank the NMAF board of directors and the 251 volunteer judges who have chosen the very best of the 186 magazines who submitted the work of their editors, writers, designers, photographers and illustrators.

Finally, I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the NMAF Digital Roundtable last fall and shared their industry knowledge. They helped us launch additional awards this year, including awards for Tablet Magazine of the Year, Blogs and Online Video, which honour excellence in digital magazine publishing.

So, welcome to—as one editor recently proclaimed in her Twitter feed—“the most magical night of the year.” I couldn’t agree more.

Mot du président: Douglas Thomson

« Le contenu est souverain. » Voilà une phrase que nous aurons maintes fois entendue au cours des dernières années. Le dire est une chose, mais investir dans cette démarche en est une autre.

Comment se traduit dans la pratique le principe du « Contenu souverain »? À mes yeux, cela signifie que toutes les ressources d’un magazine doivent converger vers la priorité la plus importante : produire le meilleur contenu possible. Cela signifie également que sans ce contrôle de la qualité, vos chances de survie, comme entreprise, sont gravement menacées.

Cela vaut, que vous ayez un bassin de 5 000 ou de 500 000 lecteurs. Préconiser que « Le contenu est souverain », c’est prendre l’engagement d’appuyer sans réserve le travail des rédacteurs, rédacteurs en chef, photographes et illustrateurs, vos meilleurs atouts, quelle que soit l’importance de votre budget.

Les consommateurs sont toujours plus avides d’un contenu de qualité, et c’est heureux. Il n’y a peut-être rien de nouveau à cela, mais on peut y voir le signe du véritable résultat de notre investissement, monétaire ou intellectuel. Idéalement, les deux à la fois.

C’est ce succès que nous célébrons cette année. Regardez autour de vous. Pour ceux et celles qui sont ici ce soir, le contenu est une préoccupation constante. Ils estiment que c’est d’abord et avant tout le contenu qui compte. Félicitez-les. C’est sur eux, des créateurs de talent qui visent l’excellence, que nous plaçons toute notre confiance. Vous reconnaîtrez sans doute certains des finalistes, mais d’autres sont en nomination pour la première fois cette année, dont Chez Soi, Globe Style Advisor, Hazlitt, Infopresse, Le Must, New Trail, Nouveau Project, Ottawa Citizen Style et Write Magazine.

J’aimerais remercier du fond du coeur ceux et celles qui, par leur travail infatigable, ont contribué à la tenue de cet événement, y compris, bien sûr, le personnel de la FNPMC : la directrice générale, Barbara Gould, l’agent de liaison et directeur des projets spéciaux, Richard Johnson, ainsi que Josh Penslar, notre directeur de la production. Je souhaite également remercier le conseil d’administration de la FNPMC et les 251 juges bénévoles, qui ont choisi, parmi les 186 magazines qui ont soumis les candidatures de leurs rédacteurs en chef, rédacteurs, concepteurs visuels, photographes et illustrateurs, ceux qui se sont démarqués par l’excellence de leur travail.

Enfin, j’aimerais remercier tous ceux et celles qui ont participé à la Table ronde de la FPMC sur l’édition numérique, tenue l’automne dernier, et qui ont partagé leur savoir-faire sectoriel. Ils nous ont aidés à inaugurer de nouveaux prix cette année, y compris les prix Meilleur magazine de l’année – numérique, Blogues et Vidéo en ligne, qui célèbrent l’excellence dans le domaine de la publication de magazines numériques.

Je vous souhaite donc la bienvenue à, pour reprendre les mots qu’utilisait récemment une rédactrice en chef sur son fil Twitter, « la soirée la plus magique de l’année. » Je ne saurais mieux dire.

Ralph Benmergui to host 35th anniversary National Magazine Awards gala

The National Magazine Awards Foundation announced today that veteran broadcaster, journalist and comedy host Ralph Benmergui will be the Master of Ceremonies at the 35th anniversary NMA gala on June 7, at the Carlu in Toronto.

Throughout his career Ralph has journeyed from TV to radio and print journalism, and delved into the worlds of current affairs and variety programming. A former host of CBC Radio’s Prime Time and several CBC-TV variety shows including Friday Night! with Ralph Benmergui and Benmergui Live, he was for many years the morning voice of JazzFM91, Canada’s premier Jazz radio station.

The five-time Gemini nominee was also the executive producer of SmartAsk, the CBC-TV quiz show, and Stuart Maclean’s Christmas special. He is also the recipient of the prestigious Japan Prize for Best International Youth Programming.

Ralph has also hosted an array of comedy specials including Seriously Funny in Canada and Punchlines in the Sand, and also appeared on Just for Laughs. He’s written for The Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star and The Mark.

Currently he and his wife, journalist Cortney Pasternak, are developing New Sabbath Project, creating community one meal at a time. The proud father of four is also engaged in the Freedom 85 plan, which places him in the enviable position of working somewhat begrudgingly until he draws his last breath.

The KRW awards presentation will take place from 4:30pm-6pm in the Round Room of The Carlu. A joint industry reception, for ticket holders of both galas, will take place from 6pm-7:30pm in the Grand Foyer.
