The National Media Awards Foundation (NMAF) is pleased to welcome a new president to its Board of Directors. Julie Cailliau, associate publisher and editor-in-chief of Quebec’s Les Affaires, was elected for a two-year term. She replaces Nino DiCara, who served as president from 2016-2018 and who will remain on the board.
Julie Cailliau noted:
“These past few years, the NMAF has thrived in challenging times, expanding its focus to include dedicated digital publishing awards, all the while remaining committed to its flagship program. I look forward to working with my fellow board members and our stakeholders to help the NMAF build on its success and pursue its vital mission for our industry. Recognizing excellence in journalism and visual creation, and promoting the work of Canadian creators and publications, is more crucial than ever in the current media landscape. The NMAF and the industry alike have an opportunity to adapt and rise, and I’m eager to help guide our organization forward.”
The NMAF has also formally approved its board executive and new directors for 2018-2019.
Recently elected to serve on the NMAF Board of Directors are: Elamin Abdelmahmoud, editor, social media, and news curation at Buzzfeed Canada; Anna Minzhulina, freelance art director and designer; and Soneeka Patel, strategic account manager, broadcast, at Google Canada.
