The discounted entry fees allow freelance creators to submit their first two (2) entries at the discounted rate of $50 per submission.
With the 2nd Annual DPAs officially underway, we are very happy to offer this special discount to the freelance creators – the writers, videographers, editors, designers, developers, video and podcast producers, photographers and illustrators, and others – who are establishing excellence in Canadian digital publishing. There is a $500 cash prize for individual winners.
An eligible “freelancer” is someone:
- who is not a staff member of a publication whose work they are submitting, and
- whose byline appears on the work they are submitting.
If your magazine work also appeared in an online platform, it may be eligible to enter. Check out the full list of Rules & Eligibility.
The Freelancer Support Fund applies to your first two (2) entries only. The regular rate of $110 will apply to any submission entered in addition to the first two. Fees paid for submissions to the Digital Publishing Awards may be tax-deductible for freelancers. The DPAs are operated by the non-profit registered charity NMAF.
There is exactly one week left to enter, as the final deadline to submit is Tuesday January 31.
