TORONTOApril 30, 2019 /CNW/ – The National Media Awards Foundation is proudly presenting the nominees of the 2019 National Magazine Awards: B2B.

In this inaugural year, our dedicated roster of 62 judges nominated 95 entries from 34 various B2B publications. These finalists emerged from a rigorous judging process, made possible by the B2B industry experts who volunteered their time and expertise.

“Business-to-business journalism is unique. This is why the National Media Awards Foundation launched the National Magazine Awards: B2B in 2019: so the hard-working professionals of the B2B sector could be celebrated and recognized by their peers. The inaugural year of the program was a great success, and we would like to thank the B2B publishing community for their heartwarming support. It is truly an honour and a privilege to facilitate these awards, and to work in collaboration with the creators of such a vibrant and resilient industry. Congratulations to the deserving finalists of the 2019 NMA: B2B Awards!” – Julie Cailliau, NMAF President.

Join us for a formal luncheon on May 29th at One King West, Toronto, which includes the presentation of the NMA: B2B awards. We’ll celebrate Gold, Silver, and Honourable Mention winners, and those winning Gold in creator-focused categories will receive a $500 cash prize. Hosting the ceremony is Peter McNeil, a digital thought leader, publisher, and subject matter expert with over 25 years of experience as a marketing executive. While at KPMG, Peter developed and launched digital publications and content platforms for entrepreneurs, called “inBusiness” and “The Next Million.” Peter has also been a NMAF board member for the past two years. To join us on the 29th, purchase a ticket through nmab2b.com/tickets.
