ANNA-KAISA WALKER (Writer, “How to Avoid Iden­tity Theft,” page 44)

Home base: Toronto. Pre­vi­ously pub­lished in The Globe and Mail and House & Home. I was shocked to learn how wide­spread iden­tity fraud is, and how much work is re­quired to clear your name af­ter you’ve been vic­tim­ized. I’ll be guard­ing my so­cial in­sur­ance num­ber now that I know how eas­ily thieves can use it to steal money in my name.

MARIE BERG­ERON (Il­lus­tra­tor, “On Frag­ile Ground,” page 64)

Home base: Mon­treal. Pre­vi­ously pub­lished in GQ France and Or­ange Coast. Read­ing this story, I was struck by how, even though hu­mans have be­come de­pen­dent on tech­nol­ogy, we can still make it through lifethreat­en­ing events in na­ture. I’m not sure I would have fared as well as Natalia Mar­tinez in the same sit­u­a­tion, but maybe my sur­vival in­stincts would have kicked in.

C.J. BUR­TON (Pho­tog­ra­pher-Il­lus­tra­tor, “How to Avoid Iden­tity Theft,” page 44)

Home base: Los An­ge­les. Pre­vi­ously pub­lished in Newsweek and ESPN The Mag­a­zine. I al­ways want there to be a twist to my work.

A great pho­to­graph is never enough; there should be a sur­pris­ing, un­ex­pected ele­ment to the work. With this par­tic­u­lar set of im­ages, I tried to snag the viewer’s at­ten­tion—with­out scar­ing them too much!

SARAH HAGI (Writer, “Le­gal Ac­tion,” page 16)

Home base: Toronto. Pre­vi­ously pub­lished in GQ and The Guardian. I hope read­ers un­der­stand the unique chal­lenges that marginal­ized and racial­ized peo­ple face in dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries, and how much ef­forts like Denise Dwyer’s are needed. Strong men­tor­ship can al­low first- and sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion Cana­di­ans to con­nect with those who have al­ready bro­ken through and found ca­reer suc­cess.
