The National Magazine Awards Foundation (NMAF) has announced Stephen Trumper as the recipient of the 2013 Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement.
   
Trumper is a veteran wordsmith, distinguished as an editor, teacher and advocate for people with disabilities, and in 2012 was among 600 Ontarians to receive the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for community/public service.    

"Steve’s modus operandi: gradually bringing along a new writer, helping them fine-tune their natural skills and overcome any weaknesses, and challenging them by assigning them stories that are outside of their comfort zone," said David Hayes, past winner at the NMAs and member of the Board of Directors of the NMAF, on the foundation's blog. "That Steve is arguably the most influential mentor working in the business today is only one of the reasons he is deserving of the Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement."
   
Trumper has worked at several of Canada's top magazines, including Toronto Life—where he was the managing editor for nine of the 14 years he spent there— Chatelaine, National Post Business (now Financial Post Magazine), Elm Street and This Magazine.

Trumper also teaches part-time at the Ryerson School of Journalism, and contributes to the production of the award-winning Ryerson Review of Journalism. As an advocate for people with disabilities, Trumper works with Canadian Abilities Foundation and Accessible Media. A wheelchair user himself, he advocates for better job opportunities for people with disabilities and equal access to media for all Canadians.
   
The award will be presented at the 36th annual National Magazine Awards gala on June 27. Tickets for the gala go on sale May 1 when the NMAF will announce the nominees for the 2013 National Magazine Awards.
