Yangaroo, a secure digital media management and distribution company, has announced the signing of a multi-year renewal with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), the organization behind the JUNO Awards. 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 eawards show management.

The 47th Annual JUNO Awards will be broadcast on CBC from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, B.C. on March 25, 2018, with JUNO Week celebrations running from March 19-25, 2018.

“CARAS is pleased to continue providing our submitters and voting members with the industry’s leading awards management platform,” says 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,” says 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.”

The JUNO Awards and more than 16 other major awards shows now use Yangaroo technology, including The Grammys, The Latin Grammys, The Emmys (Daytime, News and Documentary, and Sports), The Golden Globes, The Tony Awards, The Academy of Country Music Awards, The MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), The BET Awards, The Canadian Screen Awards, The BET Hip Hop Awards, and The Soul Train Awards.
