Volunteer to Judge

We are now welcoming applications for judges for the 2023 National Magazine AwardsDigital Publishing Awards, and the National Magazine Awards: B2B.

Since 1977, the National Media Awards Foundation has promoted and honoured excellence in journalism, writing, and visual creation in the Canadian magazine industry. In 2022, 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 remotely, in February and March, 2023. To volunteer as a judge, please click on APPLY TO JUDGE and fill out the application form, and someone on our team will get back to you. If you have any questions about how to apply or the rest of the judging process, please email us at info@digitalpublishingawards.ca.
