IPEd invites nominations for the 2024 Janet Mackenzie Medal (the Mackenzie) from 1 August to 31 October 2023.

The Mackenzie is IPEd’s most prestigious award. It recognises the outstanding achievements and contributions to the editing profession of a current or past IPEd professional member, particularly in lifting standards and/or giving exemplary service to IPEd.

The award honours Janet Mackenzie DE (1947–2018). Janet was an Honorary Life Member and founding member of Editors Victoria (1970) and served IPEd in many capacities over many years. 

The recipient of the Mackenzie receives a medal, an electronic rendering of the medal and Honorary Life Membership (if they are not already an HLM).

Nominations will be accepted until 31 October 2023. The Mackenzie will be awarded in April 2024.

Full details on eligibility, judging criteria, how to nominate and how to submit the nomination are available in the 2024 nomination instructions.
