 Some Meaningful Awards Received by this Web Site

The Mouthpiece - the world's leading brass band forum, made the following award in January 2008.
Many thanks to all who have supported the IBEW over the years!

Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Brass Band Movement
Outstanding Contribution to the Brass Band Movement

The Brass "Harrys" Internet Oscars were established by Andy Wooler in 1998.

Categories included: Best band association web site -- Best band trade related web site -- Best commercial use of a brass band web site -- Best commercially produced band website -- Best non-commercially produced band website -- Most entertaining band website -- Most positive contribution to promoting the movement on the internet.

Sadly the awards only lasted a few years before the "real" Oscars demanded the name no longer be used. However, in that brief period, the Harrogate Band and IBEW websites obtained the following awards:
Best Non-Commercial Brass Band Site 1998 Most Positive Contribution to Brass Bands on the Internet Best Non-Commercial Brass Band Site 1999
