Call for Judges

The National Media Awards Foundation is now welcoming applications for judges for the 2022 National Magazine Awards: B2B, Digital Publishing Awards, and National Magazine Awards.

Since 1977, the NMAF has promoted and honoured excellence in journalism, writing, and visual creation in the Canadian magazine industry. In 2021, almost 2,000 entries across all three of our awards programs were evaluated by a dedicated roster of more than 230 volunteer judges from all areas of the magazine and digital media industries.

We welcome applications from people who bring different perspectives to the judging process—from established industry leaders to celebrated emerging talents. We are also committed to addressing systemic racism and structural biases in Canadian media by ensuring that our judging panels are reflective of Canada’s cultural diversity.

Judging will take place in February and March, 2022. To volunteer as a judge, please apply using the form on our website. If you have any questions about how to apply or the rest of the judging process, please email us at
