Freelancer Support Fund

The NMAF is offering a special discount to freelance writers, designers, videographers, podcasters, photographers and illustrators who enter their own work for consideration. 

The Freelancer Support Fund allows freelancers to submit their first two (2) entries at the discounted rate of $50* per submission or 50% of the regular rate.

The rate of $100 will apply to any submission entered in addition to the first two.

*This rate is offered until the early-bird deadline. After the deadline, the rate offered is $62.50.

An eligible “Freelancer” is a person:

  • who is not a staff member of a publication whose work they are submitting, and
  • whose byline appears on the work they are submitting.

At the payment stage (following submission of entries), there will be an option to select “Freelancer Support Fund.”  Within 24 hours of submitting you will receive an invoice by email indicating the discounted entry fee.

The NMAF is a registered charity, so all fees paid for submissions are tax-deductible. There are more reasons than ever to enter your work for a Digital Publishing Award!
