For the first time ever, 2023 Canadian Screen Awards entrants will be able to apply online as a result of a dynamic new partnership with leading secure digital media management company YANGAROO, it was announced today by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television.
“YANGAROO brings the Academy’s entry and voting systems into the digital age, making everything easier for our members,” says Louis Calabro, Academy Director, Awards & Special Events. “This new process also allows for more promotion of our great Canadian talent,” he adds.
YANGAROO will provide, maintain and host a digital awards system for the Academy, allowing Canadian Screen Awards entrants to submit their projects online, including the secure uploading of films, television shows, digital media productions, trailers, photos and more.
For the juries, secure links to streaming video clips will also be provided to them, ensuring a streamlined judging process.
The Academy’s online application site for television and digital media entries will go live in mid-July, with a mid-August entry deadline for those categories. Film entries will open up mid-September, with a mid-October deadline.
