Canada Post issues commemorative Juno Awards stamp for golden anniversary

TORONTO — The Juno Awards are getting a stamp of approval from the country’s postal service.

Before the winners’ envelopes are opened at the big show in May, Canada Post has unveiled a commemorative stamp paying tribute to the Junos’ 50th anniversary.

The black-and-gold stamp, created by Montreal-based design studio Paprika and illustrated by Amanda Arlotta, features the newly redesigned Juno statuette that winners will receive this year.

The new award pulls inspiration from Shirley Elford’s human-shaped molten-glass statuette first handed out in 2000.

The Junos originally started as the Gold Leaf Awards in 1970 before they were renamed a year later in tribute to Pierre Juneau, the first head of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.

The Juno Awards will take place in Toronto this year and broadcast May 16 on CBC.
