Call for Entries

The call for entries for the 6th annual Digital Publishing Awards is now open! Our program for 2021 features 25 categories, including expanding the Best Podcast award into two separate categories and introducing a new category, Best Virtual Event, to better reflect the content being produced by the industry. 

We’re also pleased to introduce a new, cross-programming initiative this year. In seven categories, we will be welcoming the work of National Magazine Awards and National Magazine Awards: B2B participants, in addition to Digital Publishing Awards participants. Entries in each category will be evaluated by a single panel of judges, and winners will be announced across all three programs.

Our Freelancer Support Fund will be available once again this year, ensuring that the Digital Publishing Awards recognize the best work from a broad range of Canadian creators.
