YOU may have heard of the Grammy Awards, but what about the Juno Awards?
While both recognise the many talents made by singers, songwriters and producers, a Juno award is presented to artists for their achievements in the Canadian music industry.
Just like the Grammy Awards held in Los Angeles, the Juno Awards hosts its own ceremony each year which is broadcast on television all over the world.
This year, Logan will have a representative at the ceremony with former Springwood resident Adrian Newman nominated for two awards.
This is the first time Mr Newman, who currently has a worldwide publishing deal with Walt Disney Music in Los Angeles, has been nominated.
"I am nominated for a song called Kiss You Inside Out by the band Hedley," Mr Newman said, speaking from his Los Angeles home.
"It is nominated in both Single of the Year and Album of the Year categories.
"I wrote this song back in 2011 and it made its way to the Canadian band Hedley.
"I then produced the record for them and it came out last year.
"It was a number one smash at radio and number two on the charts.
"The French version went to number one, and it went top 20 here in America and was there for more than 30 weeks consecutively."
The former Springwood State High School student, who also worked in local recording studios as a teenager, said he was thrilled with his nominations.
"I knew we had a pretty good chance because of the songs success," he said.
"But it was still great when I heard about it.
"The night before I was actually in the studio with the lead singer of the band working on songs for the next album."
In the Single of the Year category, Mr Newman's song is up against artists such as Carly Rae Jepsen for her song Call Me Maybe as well as Billy Talent, Serena Ryder and The Sheepdogs.
To take out the title of Album of the Year, Mr Newman's songs must beat albums from artists such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Célion Dion, Justin Bieber and Marianas Trench.
All award winners in each category, Mr Newman said, are chosen by either members of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences or a panel of experts, depending on the award.
"In almost all of the main general categories, such as Album of the Year, all nominees are determined by sales during the qualifying period," he said.
"In genre-specific categories, they are determined by a panel."
Mr Newman will travel to Canada next month where he will attend this year's Juno Awards in Regina.
The award ceremony will be held on Sunday, April 21 and will be hosted by Michael Bublé.
