CARAS Announces Call For Submissions For The 2006 JUNO Awards
The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) announces that submissions are now being accepted for the 2006 JUNO Awards, Canada's Music Awards.
The final submission deadline for juried categories (including Reggae Recordings) is November 16, 2005. Submissions for categories based on sales will be accepted until January 9, 2006. All forms can be accessed at www.junosubmissions.ca or by calling 1-888-440-JUNO (5866) (toll-free in Canada).
In CARAS' ongoing commitment to review all category criteria, including voting methods and processes, the following improvements have been made for 2006:
* CARAS members and JUNO Awards judges are now able to cast their votes online for both the first round to determine nominees and then the second round to determine winners.
* Francophone Album of the Year has been changed from a sales based category, to a jury voted category. Two rounds of jury votes will determine nominees and winners. Albums must be released between September 1, 2004 and November 16, 2005.
* New CARAS member and non-member submission rates have been introduced to encourage CARAS membership and to further engage Canadian artists in the Nominating and Voting process.
* All submissions must be completed on-line. In an effort to keep the submission costs down, a penalty fee will be levied for incomplete submissions received.
