D.B. Scott wins NMAF Award for Outstanding Achievement

Industry guru D.B Scott has won the 2010 Award for Outstanding Achievement, granted each year by the National Magazine Awards Foundation.

As the NMAF presser says: “With a dynamic career spanning four decades, D.B. Scott has earned his reputation as an eminent authority in the Canadian magazine industry. [His] experience is vast and varied.”

Scott is currently the president of magazine consulting firm Impresa Communications Ltd. Many mag writers will also know him as the man behind the industry’s go-to blog, Canadian Magazines.

According to the release:

“In calling for his nomination as this year’s Outstanding Achievement recipient, John Macfarlane, editor and co-publisher of The Walrus called D.B.’s blog a ‘public square’ and noted, ‘when [D.B] chooses to mount his soapbox, he is invariably informed, fair-minded and wise.'”

The full (and legit) list of nominees for 2010’s NMAs will be announced May 2.
