"As a distinguished editor, a beloved teacher, a renowned master of display copy and a mentor known for giving generously of his time and expertise, Stephen Trumper has been a pillar of the Canadian magazine industry for more than thirty-five years" said a post on the NMAF site "....As a teacher and mentor, Steve has been an inspiration to a generation of Canada’s brightest journalists, many of whom still seek him out for counsel and friendship at his favourite tables at The Senatoror at the Starbucks inside Sears at the Eaton Centre. Shameless magazine was born in one of Stephen’s classes at Ryerson."The Foundation Award has been given each year since 1990 to recognize one individual's innovation and creativity through contributions to the magazine industry. (I was proud to have received the award in 2010. It's nice to welcome Stephen into this select company.)
The award will be presented June 7 at the 36th annual awards gala, for which tickets go on sale May 1.
