Celebrating Canadian Creators

 

The National Magazine Awards Foundation (NMAF) is honoured to announce the winners of the 40th anniversary National Magazine Awards.

 

This year, 197 Canadian magazines from coast to coast to coast—English and French, print and digital—entered the best of their editorial and design to the National Magazine Awards, submitting the work of more than 2000 writers, editors, photographers, illustrators, art directors and other creators. The NMAF’s 112 volunteer judges have nominated a total of 202 submissions from 75 different Canadian magazines for awards in 25 written, visual, integrated and special categories. This year, 11 magazines have been nominated for the first time.

 

Gold, Silver and Honourable Mention awards were announced at the Arcadian Court in Toronto on May 26, at the 40th anniversary National Magazine Awards gala, hosted by former Outstanding Achievement Award winners, Kim Pittaway, Michael de Pencier and D.B. Scott.
