Apr. 21, 2018

Organization Description: 

Founded in 1957, the British Columbia Museums Association (BCMA) creates a bright future for British Columbia’s museum, gallery, and related heritage communities through networking, advocacy, innovation, and professional development. It delivers programs and services to the benefit of its members and the sector at large, acting as the cultural and heritage information hub for British Columbia while providing a unified voice for institutions, trustees, professional staff and volunteers.



Job Description: 

The BC Museums Association is seeking BC-based contractors to fill two positions for Roundup, our quarterly magazine.

The BCMA is looking for both an Editor and a Designer. We welcome proposals from individuals as well as Editor/Designer teams.

The BCMA office is located in Victoria, BC, but we encourage proposals from any part of British Columbia. All work is completed electronically and by teleconference/Skype.


Roundup‘s Editor works with an existing province-wide editorial committee to identify themes for each issue, playing a key role in producing and writing for Roundup. In this role, the Editor produces four issues per year.

The Designer for Roundup liaises with the Editor in the layout of the publication, taking it from idea to a completed product, four times per year. Roundup is currently published online, as well as a small print run. The publication underwent a refresh in 2016 and should adhere to the general layout and established branding. The Designer must have access to Adobe Creative Cloud software.


Please review the full request for proposals on our website for additional details on the roles.

Proposals should include an overview of your background and experience specific to the role, how you would see the execution of 4 issues taking place over the course of 12 months, how you would work with the various stakeholders in the execution of the product, and an estimation of contractor costs. 

The total compensation is approximately $2,500 per issue (includes both editor and designer) up to a maximum of $12,000 per year. Links to previous work encouraged. Maximum 4 pages.
