CYBER COWBOY Cowboys In Cybersp@ce - July 1999 CYBER COWBOY

By Bob Howe © 1999

"It's an honour just to be nominated...."

The Internet is a great place to find out who has won awards, anywhere in the world, and we have our fair share of gongs right here in Australia. The Australian Entertainment ‘MO’ Awards are Australia's Premier Awards for excellence in live performance. This years' winners were announced at the Annual Awards Ceremony on 22 June 1999, and if you weren't there, the 'MO' Web site was the first place to find out who picked up the statues in the Country category. Making an extra special impact this year, Troy Cassar-Daley was also nominated in the "Australian Performer of the Year" category, alongside the likes of Natalie Imbruglia, Todd McKenney (Boy From Oz) and The Main Event (Anthony Warlow, John Farnham & Olivia Newton-John.

Cowboys In Cybersp@ce has been nominated for an ONYA award, and voting has now closed. The ONYA Awards are the inaugural Australian Online Music Awards and they honour innovation, pioneering and excellence in the creation, presentation, delivery and commerce of music and music technology via the Internet. Cowboys In Cybersp@ce is a Top Ten finalist in the Best Music Print Media Website category. Other nominees in various categories include Brielle, Frank Ifield, Troy Cassar-Daley, the CMAA, and the Country Music Store.

even cyberCowboys read ICON The Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) has been nominated for an ONYA in the Best Industry Association category. Their own APRA Awards were announced via their Web site in May. The APRA site is a great resource for Australian songwriters. Members can submit their new works and complete live performance returns via the Internet. Non-members can search the APRA database to find out who wrote particular songs. Details of upcoming songwriting events and competitions are also published on the site.

The Sydney Morning Herald has a computer supplement each Saturday, called ICON. It contains a great combination of computer fun and technological information. If your newsagent doesn't have it, you can always find ICON on-line. While they haven't quite been handing out awards, they did recently publish my top picks for Australian Country Music Web sites. What were they? Find out at the ICON My Web archive.
