2006 annual club world awards

Good to see that Canada's represented with The Docks and Stereo making some of the shortlists!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Club World Awards return to Miami triumphant this year, after a star-studded, fun-loving ceremony in 2005 that boasted 500 invited guests, presenters like Kelly Osbourne and Murk, and follow-up press coverage as far up the media food chain as Entertainment Weekly. The fourth installment of the annual awards event will take place on Friday, March 24, 2006 at Crobar 24 @ Nocturnal in downtown Miami.

The Club World Awards program, sponsored by trade magazine Club Systems International, is one-of-a-kind: It recognizes not only the best club and lounge venues in North America, but also the people and things that make them tick…and boom, flash, and glow. The “Best System” (sound, lighting, and video), “Best Product” (sound, lighting, video, DJ, effect and LED) and “Best Jockey” (disc, light and video) fields recognize the designers and operators of clubland’s future-forward gear; while “Best Party” honors the pavement-pounding promoters, and “Best Interior Design,” the flow-creating designers. There are 19 categories in all (full list below).

Winners are selected by a panel of 10 industry-veteran, entirely neutral judges, in all categories except one: The NightStalker Award, CWA’s own “people’s choice,” which is determined via online voting. The combination of expert and public judging makes the CWAs one of the most relevant and legitimate awards programs in clubland.

In just three years, the invitation-only CWA ceremony has become the hottest ticket of Winter Music Conference/M3 week. In 2006, dance-celebrity presenters will once again mix with the nominees, members of the press, and local Miami club stars, on Crobar 24 @ Nocturnal’s scenic rooftop patio. The club itself is nominated for five disco globes (Club World’s mirror ball trophy), including “Best Video System” for the immersive, planetarium-style installation on the patio. Unlike a typical award show, the CWAs feature a two-hour open bar, porn stars serving as “Globe Girls,” and the thinnest thread of a script, all keeping the proceedings fun, sexy and spontaneous.

Club World Award nominees are determined by the staff of Club Systems International, the only magazine devoted to the look, sound and feel of nightclubs. Launched in July 2000 to instant acclaim, the monthly publication covers the world’s best venues from a technical & aesthetic perspective. Club Systems International and sister publication DJ Times are published by Testa Communications.

How did Cozo NOT make this list.

I'm pissed.....especially for interior design. On the shortlists, Cozo is a given.

I don't understand how this can be the 'World Club Awards', if they only have clubs in NA ?

There are a couple of clubs in Mexico that should be up here too IMO. Palladium in Acapulco comes to mind. I think it's nicer than Stereo.

No award for best promoter?
Or host?
I find that strange considering that concept seems to be huge outside of Canada. "Jen and Ben invite you to our biggest bash ever!"

there's a rumour going around that Shorty lost his job with Stereo, I have no idea if it's true or not. If it is that would be crazy ironic if he won.
