Nominations for the Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement — the most prestigious individual honour granted by the National Magazine Awards Foundation — are due by March 1, 2012.
This award is open to circulation experts, editors, marketing, sales and promotion professionals, publishers, designers, production managers — in short, to everyone in the Canadian magazine industry. It cannot be given posthumously.
The nomination consists of a letter from the nominator indicating the candidate’s name, title and career achievements, with supporting letters from at least two other individuals. There is no fee.
The Judging Committee of the NMAF will consider the nominations, along with nominations from members of the Committee itself. The Board of the NMAF will select the winner. Nominees not selected for the award may be kept under consideration an additional two years.
The winner will be announced on May 1 with the release of the finalists for this year’s 35th anniversary National Magazine Awards, and he or she will be presented with the award at the NMA gala on June 7 in Toronto.
Send nominations to the NMAF office no later than March 1.
