AMPA’s database of magazine creatives

Dive into our Talent Pool

Did you know AMPA's new Talent Pool (formerly the Contributor's Directory) boasts over 100 profiles featuring the skills of magazine professionals across Alberta? Publishers, editors and creative directors looking for local talent need look no further. Our comprehensive database showcases the work and credentials of freelancers and contractors across a variety of industry disciplines.

Jim Zang, longtime AMPA member and associate publisher at Source Media Group, tells us why he uses our Talent Pool: "As an editor living in Calgary, but with magazines in Okotoks, Red Deer and Edmonton...I need good local writers and photographers. Sometimes I'm also looking for someone with a special knowledge of a certain topic, or a certain flair in their writing style. And the first place I look to find them is on the AMPA website in the Talent Pool."

Writers, editors, photographers, illustrators, fact checkers, web and graphic designers: take advantage of this free service to help promote your talents. Omar Mouallem, associate editor at Avenue Edmonton and award-winning writer, uses his Talent Pool profile to promote his freelance work when pitching to new clients ("take that LinkedIn!").

So dive into our Talent Pool today: the enhanced search capabilities, extended profile descriptions with sample work, and secure email contact make this a resource worth bookmarking.
