Scott Jamieson, COO Annex Busines Media has been named Magazines Canada Volunteer of the Year for 2020.
Jamieson has 30 years’ experience in B2B media, served as Chair of the board of Magazines Canada from 2017–19 and is currently past chair, and is a former board member of the KRW Awards as well as the BPA Magazine Advisory Board. He is also a KRW Gold Medal award winner.
“I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this recognition,” said Melanie Rutledge, Executive Director of Magazines Canada. “For years, Scott has contributed his time as an advisor and mentor to others. He is a champion of B2B magazines and magazine professionals, and of the Canadian magazine industry.”
The Magazines Canada Volunteer of the Year Award is bestowed on an individual whose volunteer contributions have had a national impact on the Canadian magazine industry.
In addition to the national award, two regional volunteers are being recognized by their local magazine associations: Alberta’s Micheline Maylor, editor in chief of FreeFall magazine, and Ontario’s Alysa Procida, publisher of the award-winning Inuit Art Quarterly.
Magazines Canada will recognize the award winners at MagNet: Canada’s Magazine Conference, held online on Thursday, November 26.
