Over the course of it's existence, the Canadian Professional Disc Jockey Association has developed a series of awards to recognize individuals who have contributed in some unique form to the work that involves the organization, it's members or the industry at large (these awards are separate from the Service Excellence Awards and Community Service Awards programs, which will find it's way onto this site in a different way).

Some awards are handed out on an annual basis and others are simply awarded as names are put forward as potential award recipients. To suggest someone for an award, please contact the CPDJA Head Office and you will be connected with our Awards Committee.

(This page, including award descriptions, is not yet fully complete and is still under development.)
