YANGAROO Awards AND THE ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC RENEW MULTI-YEAR AGREEMENT
TORONTO – January 10, 2017 – YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V:YOO, OTBB:YOOIF), the industry’s leading secure digital media management and distribution company, today announced the signing of a multi-year extension with the Academy of Country Music (ACM). As part of the extension, Academy members will continue to review as well as vote on nominees through the online YANGAROO Awards solution. YANGAROO Awards, which is powered by the company’s patented Digital Media Distribution System (DMDS) platform, streamlines every aspect of award-show management – from nominations to auditing.
The Academy of Country Music Awards, produced by dick clark productions, presents awards honoring country music’s top and hottest emerging talent. The Academy’s professional membership votes on the recipients in three rounds and winners of the televised categories receive trophies during the Academy of Country Music Awards telecast LIVE on the CBS Television Network, at a date to be announced.
“The Academy is delighted to continue our successful relationship with YANGAROO,” said Tiffany Moon, EVP/Managing Director of the Academy of Country Music.
