The Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement

The NMAF’s most prestigious individual prize since its inception in 1990 is The Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement, an award that recognizes an individual's innovation and creativity through contributions to the magazine industry.

The award is open to circulation experts, editors, marketing, sales and promotion professionals, publishers, creators, designers, production managers - in short, to everyone in the industry. It cannot be given posthumously. Nominations for this award are welcome from everyone in the industry. 

Michael Fox wins 2015 Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement

Publisher, circulator and magazine industry leader Michael Fox is the recipient of the 2015 Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement.

A magazine publisher is many things, perhaps foremost among them a trailblazer. Michael Fox has built a four-decade career as an inspirational leader in the Canadian magazine industry, one which makes the National Magazine Awards Foundation truly honoured to present him with its Outstanding Achievement Award for 2015.
