YANGAROO will continue to provide its digital awards management platform, which is powered by the company’s patented Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS), a platform that streamlines every aspect of awards show management. The JUNO Awards are presented annually to Canadian musical artists and bands to acknowledge their artistic and technical achievements in all aspects of music.

“CARAS is pleased to continue providing our submitters and voting members with the industry’s leading awards management platform,” said Allan Reid, President & CEO of CARAS, The JUNO Awards and MusiCounts.
“The JUNO Awards was our first Awards client and was helpful in developing the platform we provide today, which has quickly become the standard for awards show management in North America. We couldn’t be happier that CARAS has made the decision to continue with us on a multi-year basis,” said Adam Hunt, SVP Entertainment of YANGAROO Inc. “The fact that the vast majority of our Awards clients have also signed multi-year agreements is an endorsement for the quality, reliability and ease of use of our services.”
