Ontario Creates is seeking applications from qualified industry professionals to be jurors for the Ontario Creates Magazine Fund program. The program is adjudicated by three jurors comprised of two industry experts and one Ontario Creates representative. The ideal candidate will have senior industry knowledge and experience, with current activities unlikely to pose a conflict of interest with the role of juror.
The Ontario Creates Magazine Fund was developed to increase the financial viability of Canadian magazines from Ontario-based magazine publishers. Funding will be provided to support projects that have clear, objective and measurable results that will support the overall business growth of the magazine publisher.
It is estimated that the reviewing process may take up to 150 hours, spread over a 6 week time period between June and July. Jurors will receive an appropriate honorarium based on the volume of applications received and the review time required.
“Confidential Information” means all information (whether oral, written, in computer readable format or otherwise), data and material acquired by the juror from Ontario Creates or in connection with the performance of their duties for Ontario Creates.
To submit an application, please complete the application form below. You will be asked to upload your resume.
Ontario Creates strives to compose juries that reflect diversity in Ontario as described in the Government of Ontario’s definition of diversity and/or gender parity. The provincial definition states: the dimensions of diversity include, but are not limited to: ancestry, culture, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, language, physical and intellectual ability, race, religion (creed), sex, sexual orientation and socio-economic status.
Ontario Creates is grateful for your interest in participating in this important process. It is anticipated that a substantial number of industry experts will respond to the Call for Application. In light of this, only those only those invited to be a juror for the Ontario Creates Magazine Fund will be contacted. Ontario Creates maintains an active list of potential jurors.
