Judge Sign-Up

Call for Judges

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) – the organization that produces the JUNO Awards – will be honouring the best in Canadian music from March 14 - March 17, 2019. The JUNO Awards will be broadcasted by CBC on March 17, 2019, live from London, ON.

Judges will be balanced geographically to represent all major markets across the country. Judges will independently review the submissions, without conferring with other members of the panel. This will allow them to make objective decisions without the influence of others.

Music will be distributed electronically to the judges using DMDS. Judges will have the ability to listen, download and cast their votes online. PwC is the official ballot accountants for the JUNO Awards and will oversee all ballot votes and results.

  • Round 2 - Feb 1 - Feb 15, 2019: Following the JUNO Award nominee announcement, the same 10 judges will then review the nominees and cast their final online vote to determine the winner.

All selected judges will be contacted by Liz Morgante. If you have any additional questions please email elizabeth@junoawards.ca. Thank you for your interest in the 2019 JUNO Awards!
