Midem is an annual music industry conference. It has become one of the most prestigious events for the industry. Plus it's in Cannes. MidemNet is a one day event at Midem focusing on music and the internet.
BowieNet has been nominated as Best Artist site. It's up against Madonna, Depeche Mode, and Snapcase. The award is voted on by the general public (yes, you and I). Make sure you go and vote and have your friends and family vote, too! It is not a butterfly ballot and Katherine Harris is not in charge of certification, so there should be no problems with having our votes count.
Here is the review that Midem includes of BowieNet:
Should they so wish, fans could live completely immersed in David Bowie thanks to this visually stunning website. Registered members have chosen which tracks to include on albums, indicated their favourite cover art and designed merchandising.
"BowieNetters" get perks like exclusive concerts, competitions, private webcasts from Bowie's studio, access to otherwise unavailable multimedia, and Beatnik-powered technology to do their own remixes of selected tracks. They also get instant messaging, personal web space, chat rooms and other genuine on-line community activities. There's even a legitimate BowieBanc, complete with savings accounts and a choice of which Bowie picture is on their credit card.
