2024 JUNO Awards Submissions Presented by TD Now Open


TORONTO – The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) today announced that the 2024 JUNO Awards Submissions Presented by TD are now open. Submissions will be accepted at junosubmissions.ca until November 2, 2023 at 11:59 PM ET. 

To be considered for nomination for the 2024 JUNO Awards, national music release dates must fall between the eligibility period of September 1, 2022 and November 2, 2023.


  • September 18, 2023 – Submissions open 
  • October 2, 2023, 5:00 PM ET – Deadline for early-bird submissions
  • November 2, 2023, 11:59 PM ET – Final deadline


  • As the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming more predominant in the music industry, CARAS has revised its criteria across all categories to allow for projects with AI contribution, without diminishing the focus of celebrating Canadian humans making music. Elements of AI can be used in eligible projects, but humans must be the primary creative contributors of the submitted work. Only humans are eligible to be nominated in any JUNO Award category. 
  • The Album Artwork of the Year category is now expanding to allow for Digital Streaming Multimedia. CDs, Vinyl and Digital Streaming Multimedia with original Canadian album artwork are eligible, with up to four contributors recognized.
  • To better reflect modern music production, applicants for the Jack Richardson Producer of the Year Presented by Audio-Technica must have produced at least four tracks released in the eligibility period, with proof of track list and credits. Producers or production teams can only submit to the category once, either on their own or as a team.

Eligible independent Canadian artists will once again have the opportunity to apply for financial support through the 2024 TD JUNOS Submissions Access Program. With support from TD, the program was created by CARAS to support independent Canadian artists, from underrepresented communities, to help cover the cost of submission fees, in up to five JUNO Award categories per artist. The 2024 TD JUNOS Submissions Access Program application deadline is Nov. 2, 2023 at 5:00pm EST.
