2019 Northern Lights contest opens next Friday


When the Northern Lights Awards opens for submissions on February 1 you will notice a few changes. We are making some tweaks to the video categories and adding a couple of new categories to recognize the work of smaller agencies. In the meantime, consider your communications colleagues who deserve individual recognition, and get your nominees ready for the:


Communicator of the Year Award & Scott Pengelly Lifetime Achievement Award


These awards recognize individuals who have helped build public trust in government by effectively presenting accurate, timely and meaningful information. The awards may also recognize an individual whose work has gone well above and beyond the normal duties and responsibilities of his or her position. The recognition could stem from a single event during the year, from work done over the course of the year, or from a career-long body of work and achievement.


To nominate someone, you need:


  • A short explanation (500 words or fewer) of the reasons you are nominating this person.
  • A summary of the nominee’s work history, education and background. A copy of the nominee's resume will suffice.
  • Any supplemental material you would like the selection committee to consider. This might include news articles that provide information about the individual's accomplishments or other materials that demonstrate the individual's achievement.
  • We encourage (but don't require) two to three letters of recommendation in support of your nominee.


Any current MAGC member in good standing may submit a nomination.
