The National Media Awards Foundation (NMAF) proudly presents the nominees for the 4th annual National Magazine Awards: B2B. Fifty judges generously volunteered their time and expertise for this year’s awards, evaluating entries from 50 trade, association, and professional magazines across Canada. From their evaluations, 90 finalists have emerged across 16 categories, representing the exemplary work of Canadian business-to-business publications in 2021. 

The complete list of finalists is below. Winners will be announced via social media — we’re @NMA_B2B (use #NMAB2B22) — on May 26, with Gold winners in creator-focused categories receiving a $500 cash prize. All winners and nominees are also eligible to receive a certificate, while award-winning and nominated magazines are encouraged to use our official winners’ seals to promote their awards.

Top Nominees

Pivot, CPA Canada leads with 14 nominations in various categories, followed by University Affairs with 11 nominations and Queen’s Alumni Review with seven nominations. Other top nominees include University of Toronto Magazine with six nominations and The York University Magazine with five nominations.
