Toronto (February 28, 2017) – The Canadian Magazine Awards / Grands prix du magazine are now accepting expressions of interest to host the 2017 Magazine Grands Prix Fellow.
The submission deadline is Wednesday, March 15, 2017. Magazines interested in hosting a Fellow can access and complete the application form at maggrandsprix.ca/fellowships.
“The Magazine Grands Prix Fellowship is a key component of our awards program’s commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity. By matching emerging magazine talent with Canadian host magazines, it directly invests in the future of our sector,” said Matthew Holmes, Magazines Canada’s President and CEO. “When we launched the Magazine Grands Prix, we were clear that we envisioned much more than an awards gala. The Fellowship is an important way to support a new generation of magazine creators as they gain work experience, broaden their professional network and forge contacts in our industry. We encourage host magazines to join us in this prestigious partnership.”
Magazine Grands Prix Fellowships are open to Canadian journalists, landed immigrants, students and graduates as they work on stories that explore issues that matter to our country. The inaugural theme for the 2017 Fellowship is Indigenous Issues.
The 2017 Fellow will be announced on April 27, 2017 at the Magazine Grands Prix presentation at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto. The successful candidate will choose their host magazine from the eligible expressions of interest. The Fellow will work remotely or on-site, learn from lead mentors at a host publication, and gain valuable work experience in the magazine business.
