IPEd is pleased to announce that nominations are open for the 2022 Janet Mackenzie Medal (the Mackenzie). This award recognises the outstanding achievements and contributions of a current or past IPEd Professional Member, including Honorary Life Member, to the editing profession, particularly in lifting standards and/or providing exemplary service to IPEd. This is the most prestigious award offered by IPEd and recipients will receive a medal, an electronic rendering of the medal and Honorary Life Membership of IPEd (if the recipient is not already an HLM).

The award honours Janet Mackenzie DE (1947–2018). Janet was an Honorary Life Member (and founding member) of Editors Victoria and served IPEd in many capacities over many years. She was a member of IPEd’s first Standards Working Group (1998–2000) and of the Style Manual 7th Edition Steering Group, from which she resigned only weeks before her death.

Only IPEd Professional Members are eligible for this award. Award selection is based on a written nominator statement from an IPEd member, three written referee letters of support and the nominee’s three-page CV. 

Current members of the IPEd Board, IPEd employees, award judges and administrators of the award are ineligible for nomination.
