Since 1977, the Foundation has been awarding prizes to journalists, writers, photographers, illustrators and other professionals of the press, who are distinguished by the quality of their work. Through its awards programs, the Foundation promotes the development of healthy journalism by encouraging both seasoned professionals and the next generation to continue their vital work for our society. A volunteer board of directors drawn from all regions and facets of the Canadian magazine industry governs the NMAF.
