The 6th annual Digital Publishing Awards are now closed for submission, save for two special awards—the Digital Publishing Leadership Award and the Emerging Excellence Award.
The Digital Publishing Leadership Award recognizes and celebrates an individual who has made significant contributions to the industry. Writers, visual creators, designers, developers, publishers, and other digital publishing professionals are all eligible, as long as they have demonstrated leadership, inspiration, creativity, and achievement. Nominations should come from three or more colleagues (here are the full nomination requirements). Last year’s winner was Dmitry Beniaminov—check out his acceptance speech here. Prior to that, the award has gone to Kathy Vey, Brodie Fenlon, and Kenny Yum.
Young professionals working in the digital field, who have demonstrated exceptional craft and promise, can be put forth for the Emerging Excellence Award. Nominations for this award should come from one or more colleagues or mentors. Previous winners include Jane Lytvynenko, Sofia Misenheimer, Elizabeth Melito, and Nael Shiab.
March 2, 2021 is the nomination deadline for both awards. (It’s also the deadline for the NMA’s Outstanding Achievement award, and the NMA: B2B’s Leadership Award). Nominations can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
