The NMAF’s most prestigious individual prize since its inception in 1990 is The Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement. This year, the NMAF is to name Terry Sellwood as the recipient for his contributions to the Canadian magazine community. Currently the chair of Magazines Canada and the general manager of Quarto Communications, Terry has worked with—or for—most of Canada’s major publishing companies. “No conversation about magazine publishing and its future is complete without Terry’s name arising,” noted Al Zikovitz president of Quarto Communications, in his letter of support.
